This would be a really nice feature, as it sometimes complicates when we try to make an application compatible with various RDBMS. This is the only restriction I find when I try to port applications from other RDBMS. It forces one to rename object names to adjust to this limitation, and this sometimes breaks code that was already working. Specially when you are dealing with frameworks like Ruby on Rails.
I do understand that if it wasn't yet implemented is because somehow it is a difficult task, but the truth is that it sometimes forces us to do extra work when porting from other RDMBS.

I could not find this request neither on Release Notes - Firebird Core - Version 3.0 Alpha 1 - HTML format (http://tracker.firebirdsql.org/secure/ReleaseNote.jspa?version=10331&styleName=Html&projectId=10000) nor on Roadmap last updated in November 2012 (http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/roadmap/).
It is really useful on object-oriented programming (OOP) and on porting from other RDMBS to Firebird.
Can we hope this improvement to be scheduled for Firebird 3?
