No, this is actually fixed for 15 years now.  The SQL spec directly 
addresses this need through the information schema, since SQL92.

Every moderately complete SQL implementation I'm aware of also meets 
this need, either through the means specified by the standard, or by 
incompatible extensions, as is the general custom.
