A small but significant breaking change to the Model.php broke the generator so I have rebuilt it and extracted out the functionality that it utilised from the Model to within itself.

They do say that every cloud has a silver lining and this has opened the door to a couple of other features I'd been toying with adding.

I have also extended the custom providers to allow for the generation of Tasks. DC is often using a task module as a test case so I thought it only fair to provide him with an easy way to generate copious tasks.

The one major improvement in this version is that it now actively supports primary key fields that are not named id. There is still some work to be done to fully support primary key fields that are guids and I also want to actively support the creation of foreign keys in the not too distant future.

Have now added the ability to create and delete foreign keys. The ability to delete tables (with checks in place to ensure that they are not referenced by others) and the ability to see the value of the last primary key record in a table irrespective of whether it is named id or not.

Work has now started on creating tables.
