for changing schema in 0.6 is very manual in nature and thus error prone and likely to cause
data corruption.  Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :)

I do schema manipulations in 0.6 regularly.  The answer is automation.
 As for data corruption: what did you read that gave you that

If this is the only motivator and you are really only changing things
once/week or so, I suggest sticking with 0.6 and figuring out some
automation.  You should be using it, anyway.
