I am looking for a good GUI for rapid database layout purposes. I own Navicat, but find it clunky to work with. I also use phpMyAdmin a lot, but I would really like something that can be configured to follow the conventions, so when I make a new table, it starts off with id!

Does it have to be a GUI? I'd be tempted to try to apply rails database migrations to this sort of thing. You get an id for free and easy helpers for timestamp columns, etc... There may even be some way to use them outside of the rails framework without too much fuss.
