Not sure I like it from the PoV of easily seeing what has changed.

Similarly:

>some-dbname/some-schema/TABLES/sometable/create.sql
>some-dbname/some-schema/TABLES/sometable/indexes.sql
>some-dbname/some-schema/TABLES/sometable/constraints.sql

combines all indexes into one file. It also has the disadvantage if being
impossible to construct from an existing dump file.

I'd like to be able to construct the structure from the information stored
in a dump file, without parsing SQL. OTOH, it might be nice to add some
more information to the dump file.
