This is the jdbc-type ("generic sql type"), not the sql-type we're  
talking about (there is a separate sql-type that the user can specify  
if they want to get database specific).

The idea is that the user could override the jdbc-type if necessary,  
and the jdo impl would use jdbc-type plus length plus nullability to  
map to a natural sql-type that is database specific.
