[wix-users] Separate Component for each SqlScript element?

Is that really a component rule violation or merely an issue with the component not reinstalling during the patch? The SqlScript element doesn't have any file elements so I'm not sure the component rules apply here. I'd wonder what the keypath of the component is.
Then again I'd also consider making this an application problem. Most data access frameworks have some mechanism for doing code first database migrations at runtime. It sure would make the installer simpler.

Every *new* SqlScript element needs to be under it's own *new* component.
The component rules say you cannot add a *new* File element under an
*existing* component. SqlScript is just another resource like File,
RegistryValue, Shortcut, and others.
