Comment(by robe):

 ugly hack. ugly hack. ugly hack. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder, but
 pain is felt by everyone :)
 Besides that's why I'm going for an ST_geometry_columns.  That is what
 SQL/MM says it should be called.  So let's call the pure solution that and
 then perhaps one day we can deprecate geometry_columns and then remove it.

 I also don't want an old thing AddGeometryColumns camoflaging a new way.
 If we are going to push people to do it the easy way CREATE TABLE ...

 Why confuse them with having the old do the new.  At some point we might
 want to deprecate AddgeometryColumns so its best people not rely on it to
 do a new thing.
