Mmmm, but it takes a backup of the database before migrating, which
takes some time for big databases.  Worth thinking about, thought.

I'd love some comments from fellow Debian users about this.

Come to think of it, another way could be to store the schema version
for future referense, and to start a migration whenever it changes.
