For the upcoming 1.0 release ( any-day-now(tm) ), we're focusing on
the basic features of creation, alteration and removal of tables and
basic relations. This means that we're not exceeding the current DTD.
Once the 1.0 is out, all these database-specific features are
certainly possible and wished for (e.g. DDLUTILS-28).
So, please feel free to add feature requests to JIRA.
