> Hey,

yeah, I agree with Madhura on upgrading will not be easy for the user if
you add another column in an existing table. I would also suggest to use
the existing "col_extra" column itself to store the column attributes as
You might keep array dump in column col_extra which identify if it comes
under column attributes or extra values.
