It's still elegant after all these years! Altering secondary file names
with DDL sounds fine to me.

What bugs me is that we don't add the 2 lines of code to perform a
64-bit multiply (page_number * page_size) so that customers can have the
choice of a single (or few) large database file(s) instead of 100
secondary files. An Alter statement to rename that many files would
still be an error-prone chore.
