For developers it would be a very nice if loaddata had an option --ignorenonexistent, that just ignores entries in the serialised data for fields that have been removed from the database. At the moment I see myself going through endless text files, deleting all the entries for these fields, just to port the data across.

I'm not suggesting that this should ever be the default behaviour.

Yeah, that could be useful. If someone wants to write the patch, I'm sure it'll be looked at.
