I know. Forgot and just did "reply all". My bad.

It's not always that simple, at least in postgres, unless you disregard

> SELECT * FROM foobar;
> CREATE TABLE b.foobar(anothercol int);

DB2 does handle this case. Unfortunately I don't know the details of how it
worked though.

A naive option would be to invalidate anything that depends on table or
view *.FOOBAR. You could probably make it a bit smarter by also requiring
that schema A appear in the path.
