[wi 86507] RAM Needs a Better Schema Editor

RAM needs a schema editor that allows you to create and manage schemas more easily.
Creating large schemas in RAM is painful. It needs an import function so that it can read a multi-level schema from an external source (such as a csv file) and then use that to create a new schema or modify an existing one.
Ideally, if an existing schema was being modified, it would compare the two and visually show you where they were different before you commit the changes.
Currenly you have to develop your own application using the java api to try to create this functionality and that is not a practical approach for many users.
