Thanks for your hint.  Yes, CLOB is sometimes a possibility (or LONG
VARCHAR, but I assume, this is not supported by torque).  But CLOBs in
DB2 are restricted somehow, e.g. no ORDER BY is possible with them.

Meanwhile I found out, that I can handle this with some more
administration work for DB2, but it would be nice if torque could
handle this stuff in a way, that e.g. I could specify sql that is
inserted into the CREATE TABLE lines for special DB types.
