That's why I tried to downplay this issue a bit - our primary
document is and will remain the java source. We really don't care
how our object persistence tool maps objects to the underlying
datastore as long as it does the job.
Fortunately hibernate is pretty intuitive with how it does the
mapping and xdoclet allows us to specify sqlish names so the
standard database tools will still make sense... but everything
has to be driven by the Java source.
