A small familiarity with Python makes this immediately obvious, but we 
could say it, for sure.

Then you will find Python a breeze. I somewhat wish I'd have to 
"discover" Python again ;)

One common place is the /migration folder. I have used a /scripts folder 
in the past. Whetever fits you.

Once you have it written, just do e.g.::

  # cubicweb-ctl shell myinstance scripts/myscript.py

still is the best help ...

To get help on a specific command (e.g. status):

cubicweb-ctl upgrade --help

We had a section on the doc in the past for this topic but it was always 
incomplete or out-of-touch. Maybe this is not strongly enough advertised
