I went through that particular stage about a year and a half ago.  It may look
potentially bug prone, but I've learned to always do a "Preview Changes", then "Apply
changes" instead of just "Execute" to help with the feeling that everything will get
messed up.  After 2 to 3 times with a simple PCB, you will never want to go back to
the old ways.

However, I have learned not to use the update with old PCB98 documents unless I have
completely made sure that all of the old libs conform within my latest P99 setup.
