autoup can upgrade a system from rex to hamm. i think you were working on
getting it to do buzz as well - did you have any luck with that?

autoup doesn't use --get-selections or --set-selections. it just removes
packages that need to be removed (old libc5 -dev packages etc), and then
installs some new libc6 stuff in the correct (i.e. SAFE) order.
btw, the first thing that autoup installs is the latest libc5 from
hamm's oldlibs/ (it has to, in order to avoid conflicts with libc6)
