Schema changes happen rarely enough that this hasn't been an issue so far,
but this isn't a bad idea.

RPMs might have an easier time of doing schema upgrades because they can
tell which version was there before, I believe. That might not be so easy
on non-Linux systems. Would it be acceptable to expect the user to enter
the previously installed schema version as a parameter to such a script?
