Hi Colin,

The Jifty schema command will let you drop your entire database and
recreate it in a single command:

    jifty schema --drop-database --setup

This is better than just dropping tables because serial numbers start
over, and you don't have to worry about accidentally missing a table.

Yes, the docs kinda suck. :( "jifty help schema" explains this one.
