So maybe there's a market for a simple tool to spot design flaws in Databases.

Personally I would settle for some consistency in SQL syntax. I just cannot get my head around what is allowable and in what order Why oh why is the syntax for update and insert different?, especially for single row modification..

Most of the time SQL is more like an adventure game where you have to bribe the dwarf and get the key from under the drawbridge to get the Gold; not to mention the dreaded "error near" message.
