Erm, it's a namespace inside of which objects exist. Sure, the
individual tables might be on different tablespaces, but the schema's
size is a direct aggregation of the objects which it contains.
The argument that it doesn't have a size is a bit like arguing that 'du'
should report the directory's size rather than the combined size of
everything in it.
I look forward to someone adding this, it'd be nice to have.
