Stephan, Milen,

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).

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?
