Have you tried it?  With a recent version?  There were old bugs in
database creation tools that created problems (some indexes would be
hosed and NEXTID would not be set up properly).  I killed those bugs
months ago.  All current branches are supposed to be fixed (2-0 alpha
uses a different approach now).  I don't know for how long that part
was broken, possibly was broken in the Umich code base already.  So
you might be used to *know* it did not work.

Problem is you will start losing operational attributes if you keep
that approach in 2.0 when it is released.
