Hi Derek, I have thought about this - sounds something feasible to download latest patches and apply the corresponding migration scripts, but there are several issues that can become stoppers:

1 - depending on the data the migration scripts can fail on a specific instance - or require minor changes, I have confronted this in migrations perhaps in a relation of 1:100, I mean, each 100 scripts 1 requires some particular work

2 - there is no actual way to "roll back" a failed migration script

3 - this utility can be useful for testing instances - but I doubt it can serve for any production instance
