What we do (typically), since SQLite supports C-type comment blocks /* ...

CREATE TABLE "test" (

"Name" TEXT /* Note the comma is AFTER the comment */,
"EMail" TEXT COLLATE NOCASE /* Username (Unique Key) */,
CONSTRAINT UI_test_EMail UNIQUE (EMail) /* This is an Index comment */
) /* and this is a Table comment, before the final semi-colon */;
This will be kept exactly as-is in the SQL field of the schema table
(main.sqlite_master) and is easy to parse out later, or use a standard tool
Are these comments loaded into memory used by each program which
connects to the database? If so, more resources are consumed.
