      Description

      Comments are good! They exist about tables and about columns and all sorts of things. However, the ALTER TABLE syntax allows us to ADD COLUMNS but not comments...we should make it as easy as possible for everybody to add comments to a table, especially regarding descriptions of columns.

        Actually adding comments is allowed under a different syntax.

        alter table abc ( a string COMMENT 'comment string');

        This is also MySQL syntax. So use this syntax and I modified the wiki accordingly.
