Something that I would love to see is an "upgrade" DDL verb, parallel
to "create" but creates, alters, or replaces the original with a new
definition, as appropriate.

The DDL tool (same ecological niche as IBConsole) on Netfrastructure
regenerates a SQL "upgrade" command for an object and drops it into
a edit window, ready for tweaking until right. No need for any alter
commands at all (yeah, I implemented then anyway 'cause I'm a nice guy).
The logic to match a new definition against an existing internal
form isn't all that bad.
