Re: xxx$db$tables

Not quite. You could use DatabaseMetaData.getTables. It has a final field
String[] types. InstantDB recognises the types TABLE and SYSTEM TABLE which
allows you to distinguish between the two.

Yep - that's exactly how it works.

The IDs for the various system tables currently are fixed so 1000 is always
...$cols, 1001 is always ...$cols$pKey and so on. IDs for user tables could
be anything though. I keep meaning to document these tables but never seem
to get around to it.
