Well I'm very sorry about that. Please accept my humblest apologies for 
failing to meet your needs.

Obviously this being a rails app we keep the schema in the way rails 
likes to keep it because that is what is convenient for us. I'm very 
sorry it's not convenient for you. We shall of course run out and fix 
that up instantly.

Well If you want Osmosis to include it then you need to talk to the 
Osmosis author, not the rails authors.

To be honest unless you're running rails you probably don't want to use 
that schema anyway.
