Version control of Databases

When developing an application that uses database an interesting
question arises on how to track the changes you made to the database.
Changes can be in schema (including indexes, user rights),
in meta data (e.g. you might keep the string translations of your
application in an database),
some might even require some changes to the application data.
(e.g. in an application earlier the user table had an e-mail field but
in the new version you
enable unlimited number of e-mails so you moved the e-mail column of
the users table
to a separate table)

Maybe a slightly better explanation of the problem can be see here:

How do people maintain versions of a database ?
How do you make it easy to upgrade your application (including the database) ?

I guess there might be applications providing some help with this.
What integration exisits with Subversion ?
