Thanks Don. Also, why does the acs_object_types package_name column have a unique constraint? Why can't you have more than one object_type per package?

I believe the package_name column in acs_object_types refers to the PL/SQL package name rather than the APM package name. I think it might be used to optionally drop the PL/SQL for an object type when you delete the type, and so you'd want it to be constrained unique to prevent automatically dropping the PL/SQL for another type that isn't being deleted.

Ahh, thanks Tom. I couldn't find that documented -- was the package_name column recently added?
