I did then 6.2-Prerelease to 6.1-p6 to 6.2-Prerelease to 6.1p6 to 6.2 journey
(with some other iterations in between ;) ). Make sure you rebuild world as
well as the kernel, as some utils have changed (eg, GELI is not compatible
between 6.1-p6 and 6.2 mismatches of kernel + world). On my 6.2 to 6.1 trip, I
had to rebuild some libraries from ports as they were crashing (can't remember
which ones now, sorry).

Overall, pretty painless experience.
