If I read MySQL's documentation correctly, they emit a NOTE (equivalent
of a NOTICE message I suppose) when IF EXISTS does nothing because the
table doesn't exist.  Seems like we should do likewise --- your second
example here seems actively misleading.  That is, I'd rather see

andrew=# drop table if exists blurflx;
NOTICE:  table "blurflx" does not exist, skipping
