No, you miss how I'm doing it - the preinst gives the long warning if
and only if the -menu file was one of the config. files of the
previously installed fvwm95; otherwise, yes, there would be the
problem you refer to.

Another way to put it is that the type of warnings you get depend not
on what version you're upgrading TO, but what version you're upgrading 

This doesn't mean that it still might not be better to simply issue
warnings and never do the 'exit 1' in the preinst.
