It's v. rough-and-ready at present ... missing such things as automatically guarding
against tables with reserved names and other things besides! Still, It has managed to
(with a tweak or two) get my Pdox database tables created and populated in MySQL simply

up the loose ends next week then I can send it on up the line :)
