0.7.7 POJO's persisted

There have been a few new features added:

1. Generated tables now include a ProjectTable
It is now easy to override methods on Table for your tables only.
I have found this useful already and hope to change the default behaviour so
the meta data tables are not written to the target db by default, but are
stored in hsqldb memory tables.
See http://www.melati.org/Extension.html

2. The archetype now enables iterative modelling
The dsd export app can be fed back into the dsd import, so one can use the
Admin system to incrementally model.
