It keeps everything that I need when I use it.  Actually it keeps  
more then what I really want, hence my home rolled script.  I will  
paste some of the output for you to decide if it works for you or not.


Shapefile type: Point
Postgis type: POINT[2]
CREATE TABLE "5-11" (gid serial PRIMARY KEY,
"shapeid" int4,
"ele" float8,
"time" varchar(32),
"magvar" float8,
"geoidheigh" float8,
"name" varchar(32),
"cmt" varchar(255),
"desc" varchar(255),
"src" varchar(255),
"link" varchar(255),
"sym" varchar(32),
"type" varchar(32),
"sat" int4,
"hdop" float8,
"vdop" float8,
"ageofdgpsd" float8,
"dgpsid" float8);
SELECT AddGeometryColumn('','5-11','the_geom','-1','POINT',2);
"5-11" ("shapeid","ele","time","magvar","geoidheigh","name","cmt","desc" 
_geom) VALUES
