In my opinion, the upgrade is not as easy as you might think for
users who have added extra scrips and customised things.

The upgrade tool is not distributed with RT3 because it's not
considered production quality. Unless the upgrade happens easily and
transparently we're doing the users a disservice. Give them the
choice and they can upgrade at a time of their choosing.
