Subject: DBIx::DBSchema::DBD::Pg hardcodes the "public" schema
Date: Wed, 30 Apr 2014 09:14:43 -0500

Hello, DBIx::DBSchema::DBD::Pg hardcodes the "public" schema at line 37. Since we have a PG version > 7.3, and neither have nor want a public schema, and if we did would not want to put stuff in it, this breaks the module.

It does. To be fair, it is the default Pg schema, and (most) other database engines don't have this same concept of namespace slices within a database. It is also worth pointing out (for the record, I'm sure you know), that the default "public" name is unnecessarily scary. It is just the default, it isn't more publicly accessible than the database.

Patches are certainly welcome! Even simply making it accessible as a package global variable would allow you and other folks to override the default.
