Hi Mark,

There are already so many options and I'm not eager to increase
the options excessively. It's also pretty painful to add a check
box etc in the setup dialog. Basically I want to use bits in the
Extra Opts for boolean options herafter.

How about changing the default behavior of SQLTables to list only
SELECTable tables and add a bit to Extra Opts to list inaccessible
tables also ?
