What I'd like is:
1. No modifications, just delete the file.
2. Otherwise inform the user to move their hand edit to the new hook files
each and every time they upgrade.
With your proposed scheme: warn on fvwm95-n and fail on fvwm95-(n+1); it
means if I never install fvwm95-n but instead skip straight to
fvwm95-(n+1) I miss out on the warning and am told that the installation
isn't possible until I delete the old system.fvwm95rc-menu
