I'm not so keen on that chained API - it's pretty complicated.

Here's an idea for a much simpler interface. Essentially it lets you say "take table X and migrate its contents to a new table with this structure - then atomically rename the tables to switch them":

db["mytable"].migrate_table({"id": int, "name": str"}, pk="id")

The migrate_table() method would take the same exact signature as the table.create() method: https://github.com/simonw/sqlite-utils/blob/a236a6bc771a5a6a9d7e814f1986d461afc422d2/sqlite_utils/db.py#L615-L625
