I don't know... Does anyone use it?

I read in its POD docs that "At the moment, only SQLite and MySQL are 
supported.", however in the past I've seen that when creating MySQL queries 
from a DBIC schema, some fields were wrongly created, including the size 
when not needed, like
date date(10),
so they should be corrected manually. Because of this, I don't know if this 
tool can be used for do the change automaticly...
(Or was this issue solved since then?)
