Database migration in Base

Grabbed the 6.1alpha daily build just now and there it is as the default.

Also grabbed a 6.04 and then the 5.whatever it is that comes out of the
Ubuntu repo so I could create fresh hsql embed to open in 6.1.
There are a bunch of older odb files on my computer which could feed some
tests (some of them are too old to worry about I think)

It's a been a long while since I did anything here but I'll put some time
into testing and send feedback on the list and bug tracker. I doubt I'll
build from since I am comfortable grabbing daily builds on a regular and
frequent basis.

Thanks for you efforts.
