Re: PROPOSAL: Rename plugin::InfoSchemaTable -> plugin::InfoSchemaView
I think the correct term for this kind of thing is a "virtual table".
A virtual table is a base table that is generated on the fly from non-
I think of a view, on the other hand, as a way of looking at base
tables. So I think view would be incorrect.
I recommend: plugin::InfoSchemaTable -> plugin:: InfoSchemaVirTab
or InfoSchemaVirtualTable, if you don't mind long names.

INFORMATION_SCHEMA objects aren't tables, they are views, as they
