Drop all user objects

Here is a script to drop all of the user-defined objects in a database. Useful when one of your co-workers runs a script against the master database to create 600 tables and 1000 stored procedures. The script won’t handle every object just yet, the unsupported objects will have it’s name plus an underscore prefix.
— Drop all user created objects in a database.
— Drop foreign keys first, functions and types last.
