Doesn't sound very neat.

If we add a pginformation_schema, then it'd probably contain all of the 
existing information_schema... plus more.  Reduplication?

I guess we could just leverage off the existing information_schema views:


CREATE VIEW pg_information_schmema.some_view AS SELECT * FROM 
information_schema.some_view (then add extra bits).

But it still doesn't sound very neat.
