This is an important question to ask and solve. There might be points in time 
where seamless upgrades are not possible, and instead you need to hop from 
release to release (this is not ideal, but it could happen).

For instance, at $work we're allowing upgrades from version X to Y, and Y to Z, 
but not direct upgrades from X to Z. Part of the rationale behind this change 
is, deprecation of platforms and the change in upgrade framework, which 
requires upgrading from blessed releases proven to work with the new framework.
