dependency issues and such automatically as much as possible. Slowly I
see more and more instances of people having to refer to UPDATING to do
more manual alterations to sort issues out.
Where is the line drawn between too much manual supplemental fixes and
people wanting to be able to issue a couple of commands to upgrade their
system without breaking something, perhaps something they rely on in a
