When I run queries with pgAdmin, I always need to specify the schema before all table names. How can I make that optional?

Instead of doing:
   select * from name.someTable;
I want do just do:
   select * from someTable.

However, I don't want to break old queries. I want both of those queries to do the same thing.

this is  a nasty dirty method -- you may like it.

set search_path( SCHEMA_1, SCHEMA_2, SCHEMA_3 );
