We've discussed supporting sql server, and now is a good time to try it. :)

This one sounds very limiting... If you are using mssql, I put the name and
display name of indexed cols to 900 instead of 1024. Also, for mssql I don't
index audit or change log cols (will notice on UI screen to find audit logs).

I did that with one of them, but the others have only one col, so not sure
how they can be included, unless you have a way.

I tried to run the unit tests, and it made it to 300/1500, and it hung
(waiting on locked query). I tried to run queries against the DB, and they
hung. This is mssql express. Anyways, if anyone can help out with this,
that would be great. Otherwise, if it doesn't pass the unit tests, its hard
to say it is ok to use other than at your own risk... :)

Attached is my DDL, we can put the changes in 1.5.2
