If by "deep" you mean "shallow", then sure!
This is the time you all make fun of me for my lack of SQL knowledge.
Am i correct here: multiple schemas in a database. database has default
so it's another namespace thing.
and mysql effecively is just db/DEFAULT/table with no wayto change from
Is this something people want?
i think it wouldn't be too hard after i finish with the frm removal....
plan is to have a struct/object (okay, several.. but for different
encodings of names so that you can't get it wrong in code) for table
So adding another field wouldn't be too much work.
You'd just have to add a workaround or two for the engines that don't
have the concept of schema.
