Sample Data


At some point it'd be cool to make the database REALLY HUGE to test the scale of both it, and the things folks build on top of it.
We'd like pluggable Sample Data, so we'll make the structure file separate from the sample data. Basically Database "Themes" as not everyone wants the standard Microsoft "scrubbed" names.

One possibility for creating data would be to use something like Faker (http://faker.rubyforge.org) to create lots of fake data. We could simply create a series of .sql files full of inserts for various thematic data sets that could be downloaded.

Are there other Fake Data tools out there that people have used successfully?
