I'll take your word for it ;-)

Perhaps you could add a Python script that simply execfile()s
all the scripts in the order they appear in the migration

That way you'd at least prevent the casual user from actually
reading the comments in those files ;-)

BTW, I'm sure this was mentioned before on the list, wouldn't it
make your life as developers a lot easier if all data were
stored in e.g. SQLite - changing the database layout and adding fields
as necessary would be a lot easier for you that way and you get
data export tools, backup mechanisms, etc. for free.

Thanks for the "warm fuzzy feeling",
