Hello group,

is there a functionality like 'create or REPLACE table/view'
to circumvent drop with 'cascade' and recreation of depending objects?

I have a table schema1.x (col1, col2)
and a view schema1.v -> schema1.x(col1)

Another table is schema2.x(col1, col2) with same structure as x in schema1.

I have to drop the table schema1.x and create a view with same name:
schema1.x (view) -> schema2.x (table)

The drop will work only with "cascade", and after creation of view schema1.x
I have to recreate the view schema1.v -> schema1.x(col1)

If there is no way today, would it be a good idea for a future release? ;-)
