Sure there is. You can review it the same way I *wrote* it; by going through
the 2.16.7 database and dumping the tables, checking that the types listed
there match up with the types on my charts, confirming that the foreign
keys on my chart match what is in the database, and double-checking for
typos and whatnot.

I'm sure you're *capable* of doing that, as I've seen you do much more
difficult things. If I was capable of creating it, you're capable of
reviewing it. What I can only assume you meant, then, was, "That would take
too much time and effort, and I can't be bothered with it."

If nobody wants to take the time to do a full-on, drill-down review of it,
then at least it could be recognized that the diagram a whole lot more
representative of the 2.16 schema than what currently  *exists* in the
documenation, and approve it for that reason alone.

But no... just because someone's hungry, it's not enough to make them
breakfast. We have to create an automatic breakfast-making machine that will
fulfil all their breakfast needs and ensure that we never have to go back
into the kitchen again.

It'll be ready in a few months. (I hope.)

You weren't needing to eat before that, were you?
