---------------------------------------

Hi Lars,

    Thank you very much for your comments. I will wait until you review all of them and then
submit a new patch. I will try to find some one here for the authorization issue. By the way,
could you please elaborate a little more about the issue?  Thanks again.

> Two motivations:
> (1) Cost-based Optimizer (CBO) depends heavily on the statistics of a column in a table
(or a partition of a table). If we would like to test whether CBO chooses the best plan under
different statistics, it would be time consuming if we load the whole table and create the
statistics from ground up.
> (2) As database runs,  the statistics of a column in a table (or a partition of a table)
may change. We need a way or a mechanism to synchronize. 
> We propose the following command to achieve that:
> ALTER TABLE table_name PARTITION partition_spec [COLUMN col_name] UPDATE STATISTICS col_statistics
