Any plans for BE to support this new database from Microsoft?

I think after SQL CE gets out of beta, we will include the SDF file with BE.

Since CE has the same exact SQL syntax that SQL Server uses, even if we didn't include an SDF file, anyone could create their own SDF file can run the normal BE SQL Server script to populate the DB.  The same DbBlogProvider in BE will work.  So there will be very little work for us to do to support SQL CE.
