No i don't have a better way to do this, I'm trying to understand how
you implemented SYNONYNs, your e-mail has the functionality descibed but
not the implementation. To quote an extract from:

 Post the patch to the derby-dev mail list or attach it to the Jira
issue. Include the following information with your post:
[snip]
 - A description of the changes, e.g. how a feature is implemented or
why the change fixes a bug. Hopefully this will be in comments in the
code but sometimes an overview in the e-mail is useful, or have the
e-mail point to an overview in the code comments.

I imagine this functionality could possibly be implemented using
SYSTABLES and TableDescriptor or SYSALIASES and AliasDescritpor.
I'm sure there would be different problems in each approach, it would be
interesting to see your approach explained.

Dan.
