When adding new columns in vector layers, the option to add a column "comment" is inconsistent.

  • it is available in some place for shapefiles (for example "vector properties > fields > add column" or "table of attributes > add column"), but not others ("layer > create layer > new shapefile") and anyway for such data formats it should not show at all, in fact if you try to add one comment it is immediately discarded.
  • on the other hand for formats where it makes sense (ex: PostgreSQL), does not show anywhere like it should, like DB Manager and the Field Calculator.
