SERIAL columns still work just as they always did - no problem, no
change. Consequently, there's no utility to do it. (If you really
want one, run: cp /bin/true $INFORMIXDIR/bin/upgrade.serials-9.40 as
root and then run upgrade.serials-9.40 -- it's fast!)
So, now it is up to you what you do with your application. The
easiest thing is to leave it using serials. If you choose to modify
it to use sequences, so be it - RTF(abulous)M and have fun.
