We might be interested in sponsoring this feature.
But as I guess ressources are limited, my first priority is that our current "hard core developers" are concentrating on making FB3 fly.
I have no what so ever experience or knowledge of implementation of GIS, I just know that our developers here are looking at PostGress as a storage for GIS data. Meaning we will eventually be running two databases (well, we already use PostGress for some project with Ruby on Rails because Rails and PostGress are like PHP and MySQL... at least that's my understanding of it).
Perhaps (still I'm completely ignorant) the PostGis code could be adapted "easily" to fit into Firebird. But I'm not that ignorant that I don't know that it is only easy for those who don't have to do it :)
