Devforce creates EntityPropertyDescriptors for each property in the entities in the model.  The problem is that if I have properties in my entities that are the same as members in EntityPropertyDescriptor, I get a compiler warning about the property hiding the member. 

For instance:

Warning    19    'HEDataIB.EntityPropertyDescriptors.EmployerPropertyDescriptor.Name' hides inherited member 'System.ComponentModel.MemberDescriptor.Name'. To make the current member override that implementation, add the override keyword. Otherwise add the new keyword.    c:\data\healthequity\ideabladetestef\healthequity\hedata\hedata.healthequitydb.designer.cs    18140    40    HEDataIB

I have run into this for Name, Description, and Category.  These three names seem like they might be popular members of entities and so it is annoying to get the warning.  I have worked around this for the moment by renaming my members, but that is a bit annoying to have to do.  Is there any other way to work around this?

We should have this fixed by release 1.
In the interim, the only other workaround I can think of is to suppress the warning (from the Project, Build Properties tab).
