Subject SQL identifier lengths

get an solution. Currently Daisy only supports MySQL, with PostgreSQL being 
in the works. The main problem i ran into was the very constrained length 
of SQL identifiers in Derby.

I found this issue on the ToDo-List 
(<http://incubator.apache.org/derby/DerbyToDo.html>, Increased SQL 
identifier lengths) and also a discussion-thread which seemed to come to a

Although this sounds quite promising to me, it seems like there hasn't been 
a vote taken  until now and nobody is working on it. Is this correct? Or 
are there any estimates possible on when a patch will be available? Or how 
much work it would be to develop that patch oneself - given some experience 
with java but none with Derby or other java-SQL-databases?
