      Description

      Due to the way that SELECT * and partitioning works, it is frequently obnoxious to insert data into tables of the same schema.

      This could be fixed in a number of ways, all murky; this feature request reduces the obnoxicity of the current situation.

      SHOW COLUMNS foo;
      OK
      bar, baz, tball, ds

      ...then I could just copy the first three and not the last.
