GeneratorBuilder.Identity() unnecessarily restricting to integral types #230

GeneratorBuilder.Indentity() internalls calls EnsureIntegralIdenityType() to enforce that the identifier's type be integral. However, NHibernate itself doesn't have that restriction.

In my case, I'm using a custom NHibernate IUserType for my identifier:

        Id(x => x.Id)

Fluent NHibernate throws the exception from EnsureIntegralIdenityType(). However, if I cheat and work-around Fluent NHibernate's restriction, everything works just fine:

        Id(x => x.Id)

In my case, my custom type is, in fact, convertible to an int, although I'm not sure that NHibernate itself would care if I instead were convertible to a GUID, or other supported type.

I'm not sure I understand the spirit of why Fluent NHibernate goes this far in trying to enforce restrictions.
