      Description

      Not sure if this is a documentation issue, or a feature that is lacking from ALTER TABLE...

      Setting a COMMENT on a table during initial creation is straightforward.
      Changing column names and column comments is also straightforward using ALTER TABLE CHANGE...
      However, I have found no way, other than manually editing the metadata to set/change the table-level comment for a table after it has been created.
