I tried to implement a structure like this, were the databases tables could be 
included from the openser-extensions.xml document.

But this is not so easy, as there are namespace issues with the xi:include. If 
i add another top level tag (for the ns) that is not recognized from the 
stylesheets, no SQL gets generated. 

I moved the inclusion of the extra.xml to the new added openser-extensions.xml 
file. So for one table you must simply add a extra.xml file to the dir, if 
you need more you must add another xi:include the openser-extensions.xml 
Of course we could add the files extra-1 to extra-10.xml to this extension 
point, so there is room for 10 tables without changes.

Should i commit this, or should we stay with the current state?
