Does rails enforce consecutive schema versions? Because otherwise one 
could, if desired, simply use the last 1-2 digits for minor changes and 
the others for major.

Having said that, it is probably very difficult to decide in a general 
way which changes are minor and which major. There will be many changes 
(like adding a column to a the users table) that are completely 
transparent for most software but might still break some.
