And the obligation to exchange DML from one to the other. Copying the SQL
from pgadmin, collecting it in files and mailing them as DB-service-packs to
other places ... where the object may or may not exist. Or also developing
within the TEST-database with PGADMIN and copying the DML to files to put in

"DROP IF EXISTS" does work; "DROP" raises an error which has to be dealt
with. That dealing is in 90% usage "go on", as the next command usually is
to create that object.
