Another alternative would be to not implement the upgrade path at all,
and provide a separate roundcube-1.1 package instead, for those willing
to do the migration manually (which I'd argue is a low price to pay).

Package roundcube could become a meta-package and depend on whatever the
latest version of roundcube-X.Y is for which an automatic upgrade path
is provided, so it would start of depending on the current roundcube-0.9
and when/if the automatic upgrade path to roundcube-1.1 becomes
supported, bump the dependency to that.
