Probably the number one most frequently asked question about
syncdb is "why didn't it change my table when I changed my model?"
To avoid the need to repetitively answer this question on the mailing lists and on IRC, it'd be a good idea to add an explanation of this to the documentation for
syncdb, along with a brief discussion of why we don't try to automatically alter tables for you.
