Even if you're storing information in your database you should *never* be dynamically creating tables. The database is not designed for it. It's a bad idea. Store your information in pre-existing tables.

[erix]: the annoying thing is that during setup of the 'foreign table' you have to specify all the columns. But that is reasonably automatable (just reading header line, and contruct the needed CREATE FOREIGN TABLE' statement)
[erix]: it may be easier to just slurp your fils into regular tables. Has other infrastructure advantages also (indexes, constraints etc)
