This has been discussed recently. If you're doing true BDD, then you're
going to be using the test env before you even venture into your dev one.
Like you point out though, it poses a bit of a conundrum. Your tests are
run frequently, and having all those migrations run will slow things down.
Yet it's a PITA though to run my dev migrations when making changes before
I run tests since I haven't had need to run against that env yet.
