SchemaDumper :version

I find when developers are working on several branches simultaneously merges tend to conflict on the ActiveRecord::Schema.define line in schema.rb.

My understanding is that schema.rb represents the database schema as it exists after running all the migrations in db/migrate

It seems that the version number here is unnecessary, as it simply duplicates information already contained in the filesystem (last run migration)

Are there legitimate uses for this information, or does it seem reasonable to make it so the version number is omitted from the dump by default?
