New set with most of Peters comments corrected.  Left the deal about
schema though :)  Took nearly an hour to do a cvs diff for some reason
this time (normally a couple of minutes is enough).

They had been posted a few times and haven't changed.  (Attached

Unnormally is when someone sets it by hand on a type which isn't a
domain -- I guess.  Corrected.

Other messages.  Full package included on this one however.

Merge attributes says something very similar about inheritance and
table schemas.  Kinda correct considering
the variable used in both cases is *schema.

The diff weirdness in regards to DROP DATABASE is probably because I
started by copying the DROP DATABASE element, then altered it.  I
don't know why it chose that method to do the diff though, but it is
accurate.  Using -cd flags didn't make it any prettier.
