syncdb loads fixtures every time, even when it has nothing else to do. migrate should act the same way.

Agreed; the goal is to behave as much like Django as possible.

Bumping to 0.7 so we can get this right in the new migration engine.

I'm not convinced this is actually what people will be expecting of migrate; initial data loading can be destructive, and my deployment scripts run migrate after every deployment.

I'm going to mark this as WONTFIX for now, since if you rely on initial_data being loaded a lot, you should put a call to loaddata into your scripts; I'm trying to discourage the use of initial_data with South.
