 When add a shapefile to the canvas, if there is a style (qml) with the
 same name of shapefile it is load automatically.

 It would be very useful to hav a similar action for a table-layer.

 It could be use the same paradigm used for the shapefiles:

 Infact as for a shapefile the style to be self-load must be available in
 the same folder and with the same name of the shapefile but with qml
 for a table/view (spatialite/postgis) layer the style , to be self-load,
 could be available in a table with "_qml" postfix.
 For example for the table
 "rivers" the style could be retrieve automatically if exist a table with
 name "rivers_qml", in the same database and same schema.
