[php-maint] Bug#573478: Problem when using createTable() method

Package: php-mdb2-driver-pgsql
Version: 1.5.0b2-1

This is my first test using mdb2 so I might have done something stupid,
but it seems the createTable() method is missing from this mdb2 driver.

A simple code I used:

$dsn = "pgsql://giuseppe:nopasswd@localhost:5437/phpschool";
$table = "testtable";

require_once 'MDB2.php';

$mdb2 =& MDB2::connect($dsn);
if (PEAR::isError($mdb2))

$definizione = array (
  'id'         => array ( 'type' => 'integer', 'unsigned' => 1, 'notnull' => 1, 'default' => 0 ),
  'id_cliente' => array ( 'type' => 'integer', 'notnull' => 1 ),
  'numero'     => array ( 'type' => 'text', 'length' => 64 ),
  'data'       => array ( 'type' => 'date' )
$mdb2->createTable($table, $definizione);
if (PEAR::isError($mdb2))

And this is the error I get trying to call this script:

$ php db.php
PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function:
MDB2_Driver_pgsql::createTable(). in /usr/share/php/MDB2.php on line

The package I installed are:
