A table designer would require a lot of support from
Mono.Data.Sql which MonoQuery uses for database object
meta data.  See the TODO fil.  Feel free to update
this file.

MonoQuery does have a table explorer (most often
referred as a table browser).  It gives the the list
of columns and their definitions.  

As for the backing store dialog, are you suggesting a
properties dialog which details the connection string
parameters used to connect?  For SQL Lite this would
the URI of the filename of the database. 

The SQL Definition is a reverse engineering of a
particular database object.  This is so you can use
the SQL to create the object in another database.  

Note: a database object could be a table, view, stored
procedure, etc...

I would like to see others get involved in maintaining
MonoQuery and Mono.Data.Sql.  

What has Christian Hergert been up to these days?
