An an evolution user and a packager, is this really a good idea?
Shouldn't it be safer to keep it “as a backup” but mark it as already
migrated. This way, another attempt can be tried should the first one

We already saw weird bugs with data loss during the sqlite migration, so
I have to admit I'm a bit scared at this point :)
