Schematic is pretty bare bones and doesn't (yet) include rollbacks.
It just recently got support for Python scripts so you'll have to
update to use it.  As I recall we ran into some problems with South in
how it conflicted with some minor things like maybe test setup.  I
think it had some weird syncdb code but I don't remember exactly.
Anyway, it's actively developed so it's probably fixed now.  In short,
I'd suggest trying out South and see if you get stuck.  It is not a
problem to swap out schematic for South.
