DB2 propose using schemas instead packages


Now I am working with Oracle application - and I try to understand to
Oracle developers - often pattern is using "Oracle schema" as database -
and then the packages has sense. But there is not a mapping "Oracle schema"
= "PostgreSQL schema" - and packages is a redundant concept in Postgres
(and in all db, where the schema are like namaspace - MSSQL, DB2, MySQL).
