Database schema migration for SQLAlchemy
branch: master

Fix ibmdb2 index name handling

The ibmdb2 code calls _index_identifier() when it handles index name. This
method only exists from sqlalchemy 0.6.5 to 0.7.*. Nova code change attempts to drop a db constraint and
it fails to sync nova db with sqlalchemy 0.9.8 running against db2. Need to let
ibmdb2 code identify sqlalchemy version and call the correct method to handle
index name.

Fork from to get it working with SQLAlchemy 0.8.

Inspired by Ruby on Rails' migrations, Migrate provides a way to deal with database schema changes in SQLAlchemy projects.

Migrate extends SQLAlchemy to have database changeset handling. It provides a database change repository mechanism which can be used from the command line as well as from inside python code.
