//	====================================
//			ALTER TABLE EMULATION		
//	====================================
//	Note: the changement of type not 
//	influence the values of table.
//	SQLite is TYPELESS!!
//	http://www.sqlite.org/datatypes.html
//	Basically any sequence of names 
//	optionally followed by one or two 
//	signed integers in parentheses will 
//	do (not try ENUM('y','n') ecc ...)
//	And if you ever port your code to 
//	another database engine type is good.
