Comparing databases [was Re: names of conflicted files breaks Windoze ability to deal with files]

Finally catching up - 1.25 years later. I have a program which opens two
databases, reports added and dropped tables, fields within tables (again,
added/dropped) and then in whatever tables are left, diffing the records on
their common fields.

It's a fairly brute force thing, eliminating each record in the both dbs
which match a record in the first, then eliminating each record in both dbs
which match any remaining record in the second. The result is a database
with rows of unique records from each database, with one additional field
indicating whether the record is from the first or second.
