Will fix. I thought it'd be a good idea to only increment when we 
already know
we won't be returning to the old state.
So I should increase schema_version in UpdateSchemaVersion::alter() and 
decrease it in
UpdateSchemaVersion::rollback() ? And what about creation/drop of a 
space? Move
schema_version increment to on_replace_dd_space() and decrement in case 
of failure to
on_create_space_rollback() / on_drop_space_rollback() ?
