How about broken postinsts? I've seen a variety of issues coming from
that, including broken alternatives, wedged dpkg databases, initscripts
that are not properly restarted, and more.

While those issues are not fun in a chroot (but can be dealt with
there), I don't want to think about what could happen with them in the
system root. Granted, it doesn't happen all that often, but it's a bitch
when it does; and if it breaks while I'm doing a manual upgrade, at
least I can fix it right away.

Fun will now commence
