OT: Ways of managing changes to a database's structure during a project.
You can always scream loudly when database changes are requested and when it doesn't work complain bitterly that it is too hard to keep changing the database arbitrarily.
I don't necessarily recommend this, but it certainly seems to be a popular approach...
(However given the troubles of synchronizing revision control releases and databases, I'd certainly suggest that database changes should be viewed as fairly costly.)
