Place to put Database.SetInitializer

To avoid the coupling, I would prefer not to set the initializer outside the Assembly that contains the DataContext. So, I added a static constructor for the DataContext. This way every project referencing this Assembly will enjoy the initializer without explicitly setting it, and the initializer is set only once per process.

static MyDataContext()
   Database.SetInitializer(new MigrateDatabaseToLatestVersion<MyDataContext, Configuration>());

The connection string will of course be taken from the application configuration file.
