As previously stated (I think), I've happily upgraded boxes from
version to version using up2date. You do miss out on things like
"cleaning out all the obsolete packages" - I think, since I've got a

release. But on the whole, it does work.
Waider. For me, that is. Don't go sueing me when it eats your hard drive.
