I'd prefer this, especially as we had a general intention of making
dbscripts VCS-agnostic anyway.

What would be nice, is if we could get things to a state where modifying
a config.local variable and running anthraxx's migration script is all
it takes to start using git. Then in 20 years when we decide we want to
use the next great VCS it will be easier to switch...
