Yes, I've done that to myself a few times.

The method is rename old column, add new column, move data across, move
or reform dependencies, drop old column.

Adding the new column puts it to the end. In order to avoid the
repositioning we would need some kind of a position abstraction from the
physical storage to what the user sees. It's on the TODO list, but not a
part of this patch.
