*Description*
-------------
Now it is possible to define a new property in the drivers xcu file.
Per default this is enabled for MySQL (JDBC) and Ado (including
Access, Access only allows to view it, it can not be changed).

The configuration entry has to be in the section MetaData
<node oor:name="SupportsColumnDescription" oor:op="replace">
          <prop oor:name="Value" oor:type="xs:boolean">
            <value>true</value>
          </prop>
        </node>

When this is enabled the table designer will display the column
description beside the former normal description which is used as help
text. The column description is used has help text when the normal
description is empty otherwise the normal description is used.
