potato -> woody will be an issue because the potato packages aren't
modified for this. woody -> future-release won't be.
Once sendmail "registers" (in any of the methods described; this would
only happen with a woody sendmail) then it's not an issue if the new init
script isn't unpacked in any post-woody release -- the woody init script
tells libc6 that it needs a restart.
Besides, I believe libc6 is installed and restarts the daemons even before
most of the new daemon packages (like sendmail) are unpacked and installed
-- such that the restart will be with the *current* init script.
