Maybe there could be a configuration (or installation) option for
prepending all created tables and columns with a string? E.g.

  Prefix: ji_

would create and use the column "ji_order" in the database when
specified as "order" in the Schema class.

I'm not sure what kind of runtime penalty that would entail, but it
would give users who don't want to care about hitting a reserved word an
easy workaround. Might also be useful if you're mixing Jifty- and
non-Jifty tables in a single database.
