Hi Matt,

i just took a deeper look into the generation of foreign-key 
relationships, and it doesn't seem to be too difficult.
Therefore i already started and finished the first of my suggested steps 
"querried the DatabaseMetaDate for relations and populate the empire db 
model".
I hope you don't mind that started with it. I think a first working 
version should be finished by this evening (within the next 3-4 hours).

I'd be glad if you could have a look at my code, maybe i missed something.

Cherio
     Benjamin
