    sqlite3's .schema shows the CREATE statements, can be limited to tables
    with names matching a pattern.  psql's \d and its many variants can show
    the same data in a different format.  This seems equivalent to showing
    the record descriptor.

Would be nice to support wildcards in the -t option of recinf, something

  $ recinf -t 'System*' tables.rec
  SystemUser 10
  SystemPassword 120
