[ic] Table creation error when using database mappings

Hi all,

I'm using Interchange 4.9.9 with PostgreSQL. For internationalisation
I'm using the locale based database mappings found in the foundation
catalog. Now there is a problem when importing a database/table with
mappings into an sql database with support for transactions. The actual
problem is raised in Vend::Table::Common (in function
import_ascii_delimited()) when trying to call the commit() function on
the database table object, which for databases with mappings is
represented by Vend::Table::Shadow, which unfortunately doesn't
implement a commit() function.

Adding the following simple function to Vend::Table::Shadow resolves the

sub commit {
	my ($s) = @_;
	$s = $s->import_db() unless defined $s->[$OBJ];
	return $s->[$OBJ]->commit();

As I don't have a full understanding of Interchange's internals I would
like to know if this is the right way to fix this problem.
