    MySQL generation for BLOB, Text: Large Length etc.

     Hi

     I have been pretty pleased with the modeler so far and am fully convinced that this is "the way to go" for all my future data modeling.  However, I encountered a little problem with the MySQL schema generation whenever it involved BLOB, Text: Large Length etc. because the  script generated got rejected by MySQL ver5.6. ,

     If you check out the data requirements at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/storage-requirements.html, you will notice that BLOB, TEXT, LONGBLOB AND LONGTEXT no longer need a length parameter.

    Is there a way to "tweak" some config parameter somewhere to stop that behavior (i.e. putting the length parameter)? Or perhaps the place in the source code where this is processed though it's unlikely that I will fix this myself in the short term but just maybe....
