Such a function is a disaster waiting to happen. No tool can recreate any
data transformations / data refactoring that is usually part of a release.

Even if you do that the dependency issues will be a right pain, it'll be a
lot of hard manual work to put the scripts together and test them.

What's missing from most (all?) database engines is a version control system
integration and a single command which says "update all the various bits of
this database to match what's changed in the version control system" without
the user having to worry about the dependencies, which really are a database
internal gubbins issue that the database should look after.
