I agree that this syntax seems more SQL-ish than relying on a wildcard.

This however seems a rather whimsical reinvention of the meaning of
CASCADE. I'm not sure if we really need to support both immediate and
delayed inheritance of privileges from a schema, but if we do, let's
please use some other keyword than CASCADE to distinguish the cases.
Also it'd probably be better if they were independent commands, rather
than one subsuming the other as you suggest.
