Will having the redhillonrails plugin loaded for the rails app make GFD also support these constraints?

Other constraints (if any) will probably still be lost?

Could we dump the database's official schema file (and not the data contents) instead of using an active record schema?

It would make it harder to convert to another vendor (e.g. mysql -> postgres), but this is aimed at same-vendor data transfers and backups not vendor migration plugin.

When people want to migrate they can do rake db:schema:load to set up the database, then rake db:data:load to populate their prepared database.
