We have had to change the DB scheme on occasion, and more changes are probably
going to come with the new Enforcer.  We're now piling up such changes to a
pivotal point such as a major version change, but I ran into an alternative.

Has anyone ever used the tool "deltasql"?  It looks very useful for keeping
versions of DB schemes up to date with the software that runs it:


In short, it'd mean:

 * Entering all DB structure changing statements into deltasql
 * Offering such structure changes for download from a server
 * Installers contact the server for locally needed structure updates
 * Manual users can do the same through a web-interface to that server

I don't know if it'll pay itself back, but I thought I'd mention it.
