Hi,

I just tested it and it seems really easy to link Classes to tables. However, I encountered
a blocking problem: it seems the column that's the primary key has to be named id. From the code
in the docs (http://ar.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Base.html#M000057) it seems this is hardcoded.
Is it planned to have the name of the "id column" extracted from the database, or at least to let the user specify a name. I have none of my columns name id.... :-)

I hope there's a way to do what I describe, as Active Record seems to be really cool.
