What's wrong with doing :

db_create_table('blah' // etc.

if ($globals['db_type'] == 'type') {
   // optimise the table for that db type.

It's still a lot less code than duplicating every single line of  
every single schema
for every single db type.

When we look at our usage patterns up to now, that ends up being the  
exception and not the rule.
