I don't know. I haven't written it. dpkg-multicd should be as good
wrt. upgrades as other methods from dpkg (source pkg). apt probably
does a better job when it comes to proper access to the archive, but
that wasn't the question. dpkg-multicd has gotton some updates to
work better (there was one particular bug that Anne found). It's
probably not compatible with dpkg-multicd2 that may appear on one
or the other system.
