This is true as long as you don't have other applications that are 
accessing the same underlying database - I've worked on several systems 
where a new web front end was being built to run in parallel with 
existing applications.  In this case, database schema modifications are 
possible but much more involved.

I think this points to one of the benefits of the Python world when it 
comes to web frameworks - there isn't a "one-size-fits-all" default 
solution that everyone uses.  This means some fragmentation of the 
community but solutions that better fit the specific problem you're 
dealing with.
