Yes, great use for the decorator pattern, although it's quite laborious 
following the code in HTML - guess I should have downloaded it :O

I didn't think that deleting the foreign keys was necessary, but that extra loop 
  to go over the foreign keys and drop them all first fixed the issue.

So thanks alot for the pointer.

Just a slight niggle though that I have, and that is on the lack of warning at 
the end of the 'drop table' loop beforehand - I should have received some sort 
of error that my tables did not in fact drop quietly, when in fact I received none.
