In particular with the offline stuff, it is highly likely that code will
be running and interacting with the database in one window when a script
tries to update the schema, and we don't want authors to have to implement
some primitive locking facility of their own to prevent old versions
corrupting the data. I think it's relatively light-weight yet provides
something that could end up being really useful in certain cases.
