I've tested it: works great. This is the DBA's nightmare! Applications 
will recognize if tables exist and act accordingly.

It would be cool to get rid of the torque schemas (they caused a lot of 
pain to many users). But we currently also use Torque to insert test 
data for the testsuite.
Maybe we can write a little app that inserts the testdata using normal 
entity classes and your automatic table generation.

The Fielddescriptors in repository.xml currently do not contain any size 
information. that is, they don't specify VARCAHR(255) but only VARCHAR!
We have to add this information!
