We don't use Laz Data Desktop for this yet. We currently use a tool
called DB Dezign. It allows visual database design and generates the
Create and Drop scripts for any of the supported DB backends. The
scripts it generates is very neat. An awesome tool!

Yup. I've always had issues trying to use bash script and isql to
create a blank database. TSQLScript makes this all childs play.
