Summary0004858: exchange should initialize database automatically, just like the merchant does
DescriptionFor two reasons:
1. restores consistency with taler-merchant-{httpd,dbinit}
2. makes deployment scripts easier, since we don't have to start the db separately, wait for it and initialize the DB before we can start the exchange
TagsNo tags attached.

We should not _always_ do the dbinit automatically as it is costly and would make us slow when fuzzing or restarting from a crash. Also, there is the issue of "IF NOT EXISTS" not being supported (yet) for indices. And as usual, running less logic is better. However, I don't see a reason why we should not have an *option* to do dbinit within the httpd.

Note that uniformity with the merchant's httpd is a non-goal for me, as the exchange better be run by admins that know exactly what they do, and for them trying to create a table that already exists is a sign of a MAJOR screw-up (in fact, the permission to create tables should have been revoked prior to going into production!), while for merchants my expectation is _WAY_ lower and the usability concerns are _WAY_ higher.
