Use INFORMATION_SCHEMA

Registered by Anthony Bush on 2009-03-23

The SchemaGenerator should use INFORMATION_SCHEMA, thus enabling support of more databases during generation. In addition, it should use the new DAL for drivers instead of making it's own dblayer_query() calls. Where INFORMATION_SCHEMA is not fully implemented by the DB layer, the base classes should be overridden (e.g. MySQL < 5.1 does not store all the information needed to retrieve foreign keys).
