Maybe nobody needs DDL in it or we have too few people using it to
report bugs :)

Also in 3.4.x (STABLE). Go to database `evil'"*/>` and try to export
table `evil'"*/>` with all options selected. You will get only data
(no structure) and invalid XML
Another broken plugin is CodeGen, it ignores it's format setting and
always outputs C# code (I will push a bugfix to master later today).
