Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 For live sites, I don't think any of these solutions are viable. Any
 active site will run into partially migrated data resulting in malformed
 objects, incomplete data-sets, and eventually cache pollution.

 For potentially large data migrations, I'd like to propose instead that we
 copy existing tables into temporary tables, perform an Ajax style
 migration similar to bbPress 2's converter tool, check the validity of the
 migration, and then rename tables only once an administrator can confirm
 that everything looks right.

 Smaller changes that can be handled in only a few queries can probably
 avoid using this tool, using either dbDelta or something one-off.
