ok so at this phase no changes in sqldb TSQLConnection and descendants

1. As a minimum I would suggest change column names in existing queries 
to be compatible with SQL standards
   Discussed earlier in this thread. This I would do immediately 
(independent of other changes).
2. Consider adding at least stSchemata (alias to stUserNames in Delphi)
3. for stTables, stColumns, stProcedures, stProcedureParams add in 
sqldb.pp default queries for INFORMATION_SCHEMA views TABLES, COLUMNS, 
4. If somebody has interest add also other TSchemaTypes like Ludo wrote.
   (but for example for TODBCConnection we must use only existing API 
like SQLStatistics so we will not be able implement all)
