Hurray! Hurray! Sanity prevails!
Has anyone given any deep thought to the database / schema issue? In
MySQL, schema is a synonym for database (I presume for a checkmark on
somebody's database comparison grid). It would be nice to know what
semantics attach to database, what semantics attach to a schema, and,
maybe, recognize that they aren't two names for the same thing.
Or is this asking for too much?
