lately Galaxy undergoes DB migrations very rarely and if so it usually just adds tables/columns in a very clear manner.
API should shield you from any changes breaking your DB script but to be honest I would not expect any unless you are gathering data on some complex object relations (which API won't give you anyways).

hi martin, thanks for the immediate follow-up!
Our aim at using the API is the simplicity it provides.
part of my rationale in looking at the API for reporting purposes was stability: my impression is that the galaxy-internal database schema undergoes relatively frequent revisions, but i would assume the API to hide some of those changes from us?
