I'm not sure how appropriate a place this is for the upgrade logic, but 
it's at least an option.  Currently, base-config doesn't provide a 
.config script, so it seems contrary to the package's design to use it 
for file-twiddling related to upgrades.

Yep.  There are pros and cons, of course; but that's one of the reasons 
for discussing the matter here, to try to build consensus around a 
solution that we can all be happy with.
