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

On second thoughts, when people care about the additional safety check, they are likely to
have additional checks in place, such as StorageBasedAuthorization (SBA). SBA for example
would check if the user has permissions for the alter* call, and if the object does not exist,
the permission would be denied. As a result, this change does not affect safety when users
actually care about it.

I agree we can skip the checks for existence in alters.

> The initial patch only supporting getting a single database, add database, and drop database.
 Support needs to be added for alter database, getting all the databases, and getting database
names by pattern.
