I'm not sure what other DBMS' return in this situation (and kindly
ignore this suggestion if it's specified or otherwise determined),
but perhaps the output could be TABLE "blurlx" DOES NOT EXIST
(without the ERROR) or something more informative, rather than DROP
TABLE. It reminds me of the old behavior of outputting COMMIT even in
the case of transaction failure. I find the current behavior of
outputting ROLLBACK in the case of transaction failure more useful.
