That's why I wouldn't give up too easily on making the db setup work
from a normal sql script. Currently we have the .sql out there, but
I'm not sure it's up to date (though it looks like it), and if it's
not used, it's certainly in danger of getting out of date at some

Now that the samples are at least working again, how about considering
some options for actually creating the samples "schema" from the .sql?

- Do it during build?  HSQL block build? Database block build? Separate 
- Could we have a pipeline to do this that would be the first link
on the database block samples page?  Users could provide the db connection 
name, which would let them use hsql by default, or any other db they've 
already set up.
- Other ideas?
