Just make sure that you store everything of the downloaded article in
the database. When something changes dramatically, it should be very
doable to write a sort of conversion script that converts the database.
Actually, I think it is worthwhile to write a script that can convert a
database to some intermediate format (that never changes). Then you only
need to write a script that can convert from the intermediate format to
the new database format.
