I don't know, there were no ways to upgrade to sarge's aptitude.

The bug log contains a log of astronut doing the upgrade with sarge's

I think the bigger problem is not whether it's possible to do this (which it somewhat was) but that it's not intuitive and that it would require research for someone to figure out how to do. Perhaps there should be some kind of upgrade pseudo-package created to ease the transition, that depends on the tools needed? Ie, aptitude install etch-upgrade would install the later version of aptitude, etc. needed for the upgrade.
