Hi Ryan,

Thank you for your emails and well described problems.

I believe your approach is ok. I could quickly either set capability
SupportsSchemaModification to false or I could check for "added flag"
for classes in schema and create only those.
It still wouldn't be full SupportsSchemaModification but could help at
least with most common case of adding new table.
