Importing a PDM into Liquibase

A client is using a combination of PowerDesigner (for modelling) and Liquibase (for managing changes to databases). It would make the whole process simpler if there was a way of importing a PowerDesigner PDM into Liquibase. Is this a problem that someone has solved already?

I'm looking into the import options for Liquibase shortly; perhaps it has a standard XML import mechanism I can take advantage of.

Liquibase can read in database schemas from real databases, so one option I'm considering is one or more reference databases. I would create or update an empty database from the latest PowerDesigner PDM; Liquibase will then read in that database and build it's own internal representation, which it can then compare with the different database environments.
