generally i think that ddlutils is a very good and usefull and well
documented tool.
the "supported databases" section i found particularly helpful.

i have to admit though that i am rather sceptic regarding the benefit
of replacing
the .ddl files with ddlutils. the current mechanism is IMO very simple
yet efficient.
does ddlutils support placeholders in schema object names, e.g.
"create table ${schemaObjectPrefix}NODE ..."? another issue: the schema used
is extremely simple. i prefer to 'tune' the schema for specific
backends rather than
restricting myself to the least common denominator. an example:
