As a meter a fact it is very simple, basically for shp provider data
store is the folder.
Apply schema will create shp files in folder (data store).

Anyhow I agree that this command should be implemented, it is important
to try to keep consistency across providers, to have a common level of
functionality as high as possible.

Haris, I'd like to join your question.
I'm also wondering the reason CreateDataStore command has not been
implemented yet.
Theoretically, it seems as not a big challenge, but I suppose there are
some details which I can't see but which make it tricky.
I'd be thankful for some comments from SHP provider developer(s).
