No problem.  I think we can do something here but it will not all be 
done for 0.9.2.  Please feel free to get involved in implementing these 
with me.  They are rather simple but we must make sure we cover them  
(checks) all.  I will commit some stuff and point out how I am adding 
schema checks.  The manner of adding checks should be pretty easily 
followed.  If a couple of people work this then we should be able to 
roll it out quickly.

Great then we can test these before the release.

Yeah I think we should have some configuration parameter to control 
schema checking.  However there are different levels of checking.  Some 
of which might be required regardless of overall schema checking being 
disabled.  For now we can just have the parameter turn it all off or 
turn it on until we see more use cases where we should make some scheme 
checks on all the time.

Right this is something we need to ponder in more depth.  For now I'll 
enable all on or all off based on a configuration parameter.
