You could do a full setup of the db without running the migrations:
python manage.py syncdb --noinput --all
and fake the part of running the migrations:
python manage.py migrate --all --fake
After trying these new migrations added in the future should work. If
they don't work there is always the option of dropping the dev db and
creating in again with syncdb.
