    Description

      I suggest adding an ALTER DATABASE statement, for completeness and future expansion.
      Currently, Hive has ALTER DATABASE that AFAICT only allows a SET clause to change properties.

      One logical syntax / use case for an Impala ALTER DATABASE would be:

      ALTER DATABASE old_name RENAME TO new_name;

      (OK to disallow for the DEFAULT database or the currently USEd database.)
