Then make the upgrade smart enough to do it using
configure-<packagename>, and tell the user to run that to move over
to the new way of doing things in order to get the new functionality.
Backward compatibility is also smart.
If I am upgrading a hundred or so packages (which happens for
machines tracking stable), AND am on a time schedule, redoing a
gazzillion packages is not something I would appreciate.
