Intent to package bo-upgrade (autoup.sh)

I intend to create a new package bo-upgrade which is based on StormCrows
autoup.sh script. It can be installed on a bo system and will upgrade the
system so that dselect can do the rest of the update.

Theory of operation:

1. Postinst makes sure all files needed for the upgrade are present and
runs a nohup job waiting for dpkg to finish processing.

2. When dpkg has finished processing the waiting background job does the
upgrade of all necessary packages in the correct order.

3. It cleans wtmp/utmp, deinstalls the bo-upgrade package and reboots.

I am not keen on maintaining such a package but will do so if no one else
volunteers. In fact if someone else has plans just go ahead.
