Changes the definition of a tablespace.

ALTER TABLESPACE changes the definition of a tablespace.
You must own the tablespace to use ALTER TABLESPACE. To alter the owner, you must also be a direct or indirect member of the new owning role. (Note that superusers have these privileges automatically.)
- The name of an existing tablespace.
- The new name of the tablespace. The new name cannot begin with pg_ or gp_ (reserved for system tablespaces).
- The new owner of the tablespace.
Rename tablespace index_space to fast_raid:
ALTER TABLESPACE index_space RENAME TO fast_raid;
Change the owner of tablespace index_space:
ALTER TABLESPACE index_space OWNER TO mary;
There is no ALTER TABLESPACE statement in the SQL standard.
