Fedora updates are different. (And so are Ubuntu updates, if one considers
that it's possible to provide fixup scripts to update-manager pre-upgrade.)
As long as we're supporting upgrades through plain apt, that's going to
be hard. Especially if you have non-distro packages installed that need
to be migrated as well, with the tracking information updated.
