Thanks for clarification, the part of name 'newer' has created
confusion. I understand
that creating/identifying dependency in some of the cases will be
quite tricky, does other
similar languages for other databases does that for all cases (objects
in dynamic statements).

Is the main reason for identifying/creating dependency is to mark
function as invalid when
any dependent object is Dropped/Altered?

This thread is from quite some time, so please excuse me if I had
asked anything which has
been discussed previously.
