Nico, why do you want to swap a field's position? Do you really want to have
SELECT * FROM <table>
and get the new ordering?

Anyway, let me say that there's a mismatch between what docos say and what
IB does: this command is the only one that uses ZERO-BASED column positions.
To be in sync with SQL, this position should be ONE-based. It was discovered
by a person that maybe is in this list.
