delphi/sql apps portable (stringtables)?

We are considering using stringtables to include all our SQL statements
(one downside if the 256 limit). Thus having them all in one place and
making a conversion for another database easier.

I know stringtables are normally used for including prompts and error
messages so as to ease translation to a foreign language.

Would my above suggestiopn be a good use of stringtables or is there a
better way to achieve our goal?

Thanks.

Tom.
