I don't know if it's necessary, but in my experience it's worth the 
trouble.  In the past I've found that there were new features that I 
never saw until I started fresh with an empty configuration-- something 
about the config from the earlier release suppressed the new features.

Another reason is to avoid compatibility problems between old and new 
releases that can lead to bad behavior, such as crashes :(
