Developers have the Informix Client SDK installed on their workstations / application development machines.
There is the need to be able to dump the Informix databases schemas definitions, but the SDK does not provide any such tool.
To work around the issue, we have to either use 3rd party tools, give the developers shell access to the Informix server or install the server binaries on the developer machines.
If the dbschema tool is bundled in the Informix Client SDK, the need for the workarounds is avoided.
Why is it useful?

How should it work?
The dbschema tool should be bundled with the Informix Client SDK.
