Wouldn't it be better to have a -drop script (or set of scripts) that
would drop everything it needed, in order to avoid ERRORs in the logs (for
the reason you mentioned above, they can hide real errors)?

Why? I didn't understand why it is a catch 22.

What I meant was a scenario like this:

1) User runs bootstrap script
2) bootstrap script notices that things are already installed, at least
3) bootstrap script asks user if s/he wants to DROP everything and start
   from scratch
4) If user says yes, bootstrap script runs -drop scripts (or set thereof)
5) bootstrap script proceeds with installation.

Unfortunately I already got rid of it. Sorry. I'll try to replicate.

I am certain I dropped the DB and it failed to reinstall. I'll do it again
to verify and report back.
