When I'm initially prototyping the tables in SQLite, I just delete the
database file and let it reinitialize again automatically when I restart the

You can run:

bin/jifty schema --drop-database
bin/jifty schema --setup

This assumes that your database user has permission to drop and create the
database for your application in your DBMS.

It might be nice to have a script to drop all tables instead, but I don't
think there is any such thing yet.
