Sleeping Easier with Migrations

As a rails user who loves migrations, I have noticed that all of the migrations are prefixed with three decimal places, like 001_create_sessions.rb or something of that nature. That got me thinking, what would happen after I had 999 migrations?

That sets of the paranoia level up because who knows, I may need 1001 migrations! So to settle this once and for all, I wrote a script that would generate 999 migrations for me. I ran the 1000 migration and then it created 1001_test1001.rb.

Good news! Rails doesn't constrain its migrations to a 3 decimal place prefix. So pointless...
