My twopennyworth here - a vote for AR2DBD4. With the project I'm
currently working on I started with a BUFD in DB4 and found the script
to generate models from that really useful (although I'm not sure it was
the script mentioned here). Since then I've dumped that design and am
working exclusively with models. So it would be nice to have a script
that generated the DBDesigner4 XML so that one could view the overall
schema now and then
