I assume this is a something that will be done before the 2.x

Both methods would use the same code, since they will need to parse the
output from SHOW CREATE TABLE.

Another question when we first are at the question about missing
features. mysql table query, should also put out the engine used. Why?
If you want to create FK, the table you refer to has to be innodb (or
other engines that supports FK). The point is, the user needs to be able
to lookup the engine used, without haveing to do manual queries.

I would be happy to look into it. It might take some time, since I'm new
to this project, and that my time is limited.
