There may be issues when moving from devfs to udev. These should probably 
be documented in the Release Notes for Etch.
The reason this needs to be documented is that Etch 2.6 kernels no longer 
support devfs.

See for example http://bugs.debian.org/341152

At the very least a general warning should be added.
An alternative could be to suggest switching to static dev before upgrade.
