Fully qualified table names in ActiveRecord

Hi there,

I'm developing an app based on a legacy database in which all the
tables were created by a user other than dbo. That means in order to
access the tables I need to qualify the table name with the owner
name, like so

"SELECT table.* from owner.table"

The problem is if I use 'set_table_name "owner.table"' then the sql
generated is incorrect

'SELECT "owner.table".* from "owner.table"'

Is there anyway to handle this elegantly with AR? I guess my choices
are:

1) Have my app access the DB as the user who created all the tables
(super powerful user, so this is not really appealing)
2) Modify the DB to have a group own all the tables, then throw my
app user and the original user into the group (scary making those
kinds of sweeping changes to a legacy DB that is at the heart of a
business and already has several apps using it)
3) Modify my code to use find_by_sql's everywhere (just yuck)

I was thinking of trying to monkey patch the AR code to use different
values for the table name depending on if it is being used to identify
a column or a table, but that seems like an awful lot of work.

Are there any other suggestions out there?

Cheers!
