more and more ORM and systems such as Rails or CakePHP supports or strongly recommend to respect a naming convention where tables are plural as they contains many rows and foreign keys are singular as they point to one row.

So we get things relations like ... order_id = orders.id

How to repeat:
when creating a new model in Workbench, or when reverse engineering one from a MyISAM database.
it would be useful that FK could be detected from this naming convention.

right now, I have to add all the relations between the tables and Workbench adds a new foreign_key into the table. duplicating them.... if at least, I could specify that the column already exist... I'm thinking clicking on the column to create the relation would make sense....

This is a reasonable feature request: add option to recognize this kind of naming conventions for reverse engineering etc.
