When in doubt, run rake with --trace, and you'll see 1) which tasks are
considered as prequisites, and 2) which of these are actually run.

For example, I tend to do 'rake db:migrate:redo' when I'm writing a
migration, in order to make sure the migration is downable as well as
upable. However, I found that it was leaving schema.rb in the 'down' state.
Running rake with --trace showed me that the task of writing schema.rb was a
prerequisite for both the down and the up - but the dependency had been
satisifed by the first invovation, hence it didn't write schema.rb again
after the up.
