We already have broken desktops-on-upgrade with current systemd-shim in
the archive. And it is even broken after reboot.
It might be bugs in the desktop related packages, but it is also a very
low priority one.

Also, post-upgrade-pre-reboot systems has had issues since forever, and
I think even the upgrade notes recommends to not dist-upgrade from
within X.

So, where do we want to put our resources?
Improving the actual experience once fully upgraded and rebooted? Or
ensure a better experience when in the middle of the upgrade and not yet

I know where I would put the resources I can allocate.
