    I recall a popular rails gem[1] once upon a time that provided multi-tenancy via postgres schemas.

    As it turns out, even the company the initially developed the gem ended up ditching the approach due to some of the issues you outlined above.

    Managing separate schemas feels like one of those nefarious decisions that make things simple _initially_ but get you into a world of hurt when you need to scale. The company is since defunct but they have an article where they discuss why they ditched the approach [2], TL;DR it's too difficult to maintain and scale
