I'm setting up a database that is small (three tables, may grow to 3GB
over next year).  I need a strategy to deal with the unknown, which is
how to add fields to an existing table.  I read in the docs that doing
this can be painful and it is required to put something in each field
for each record.  Do I have this correct?  If so, how do I handle the
inevitable "...would you add..." that is sure to come within the next
few months?  I would add them now, but I really can't anticipate how
many fields will be added or their requirements.

In general, do other databases have similar restrictions?  At some time,
when I have time, I will consider MySQL, MariaDB, and others.
