http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_schema speaks of describing the
structure of a DB using "a formal language supported by the DBMS". Nothing
graphical in there. The illustraction is "a depiction" [i.e. a graphical
representation] of a database schema.
I suggest not renaming schema.py to anything else before CW 4.
