db:migrate:down should default to the current migration

Reported by David Chelimsky | October 10th, 2008 @ 06:18 PM

$ rake -T | grep down
rake db:migrate:down    # Runs the "down" for a given migration VERSION.
$ rake db:migrate:down
rake aborted!
VERSION is required

Most of the time I use this, it's while I'm developing a migration and I want to run the down for the one I'm working on. I think that if you don't set a VERSION that it should just figure out the current version and use that.

Similarly, db:migrate:up should default to the one greater than the one you're working on, though that could be trickier because it would have to deduce this from the file system.
