Even if ODBC would be a TRUE reality on all
plataforms, we'd need a ODBC driver for Firebird, wich exists only for
Windows (there is plans for a Linux one, but it's not available yet). For
Macintosh, Firebird is nothing.

You are mistaken. There are ODBC drivers for Interbase (and Firebird) for 
Linux, Solaris, Windows, and OS X. 

Have a look at:

and 

http://www.ibdatabase.com/

Nevertheless, if there was only one external database for which Runrev 
provided native Rev drivers, it should be Interbase/Firebird.
