      > CREATE TABLE b (`transaction_id` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', KEY `transaction_id` (`transaction_id`));
      Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)
       
      > alter table b DROP KEY transaction_id, ADD UNIQUE KEY IF NOT EXISTS (transaction_id);
      Query OK, 0 rows affected, 1 warning (0.00 sec)

      expected results: A table with a unique key.

      Alexey Botchkov says in MDEV-8212 that the IF EXISTS applies to what is there BEFORE the query. This is obviously how its implemented. What the expected behaviour reading the SQL statement?
