The "comments" column in SHOW TABLE STATUS is supposed
to list the FKs as well. A rather silly way of doing things, IMO,
cause you can't use the "comments" yourself anymore.
Besides, the "comments" field is waaay too short for a larger number
So, as far as I know, SHOW CREATE TABLE is the only way.
