      Description

      SYNONYMs are a non-standard extension supported by many databases. See DERBY-335. Right now SYNONYMs are only allowed for tables and views. It would be useful (and should be easy) to extend this feature to support SYNONYMs for table function invocations. E.g.:

      CREATE SYNONYM LT0 for TABLE( LT0() )
      CREATE SYNONYM LT0_P for TABLE( LT0('with_provenance') )
