I find it to be of variable usefulness. It is great when it works, but
in my experience it scales horribly.
I just use it on a laptop and it works for me, but I agree that it's
mostly a hack originating in the automated testing. There's even a bug
open for rewriting it...
I think I always see "comparison was impossible" with
assumed that is because the databases are deleted or something (although
thinking about it further I am not sure that is a reasonable expectation).
There should be "before" and "after" dumps also for refreshes, so
has to be something else.
