[hibernate-dev] Merging hibernate spatial Dialects with the core ones

It makes sense for some Dialects such as those for MySQL and MS SQL Server.
Less so for Postgresql and Oracle Spatial because here the spatial
capabilities need to be installed and configured separately (and even have
versioning separate from the main database engine).
I would favour an approach, close to what Sanne is suggesting, where the
spatial capability (Incl. Types) is injected into the Dialect during
Dialect construction based on some explicit configuration. In that way the
relation between Dialect and the spatial capability mirrors the relation
between database engine and spatial capability (if any).
PS: I'm leaving tomorrow on holiday for a couple of weeks so I won't be
able to resume the exchange before July 20.
