#' Database and SQL generics.
#'
#' The `sql_` generics are used to build the different types of SQL queries.
#' The default implementations in dbplyr generates ANSI 92 compliant SQL.
#' The `db_` generics execute actions on the database. The default
#' implementations in dbplyr typically just call the standard DBI S4
#' method.
#'
#' A few backend methods do not call the standard DBI S4 methods including
#'
#' * `db_data_type()`: Calls [DBI::dbDataType()] for every field
#'   (e.g. data frame column) and returns a vector of corresponding SQL data
#'   types
#'
#' * `db_save_query()`: Builds and executes a
#'   `CREATE [TEMPORARY] TABLE <table> ...` SQL command.
#'
#' * `db_create_index()`: Builds and executes a
#'   `CREATE INDEX <name> ON <table>` SQL command.
#'
#' * `db_drop_table()`: Builds and executes a
#'   `DROP TABLE [IF EXISTS]  <table>` SQL command.
#'
#' * `db_analyze()`: Builds and executes an
#'   `ANALYZE <table>` SQL command.
#'
#' Currently, [copy_to()] is the only user of `db_begin()`, `db_commit()`,
#' `db_rollback()`, `db_write_table()`, `db_create_indexes()`, `db_drop_table()` and
#' `db_analyze()`. If you find yourself overriding many of these
#' functions it may suggest that you should just override `copy_to()`
#' instead.
#'
#' `db_create_table()` and `db_insert_into()` have been deprecated
#' in favour of `db_write_table()`.
#'
#' @return Usually a logical value indicating success. Most failures should generate
#'  an error. However, `db_has_table()` should return `NA` if
#'  temporary tables cannot be listed with [DBI::dbListTables()] (due to backend
#'  API limitations for example). As a result, you methods will rely on the
#'  backend to throw an error if a table exists when it shouldn't.
