If this is a required step upon the upgrade/removal, then your path
is flawed.  You cannot expect all users who upgrade from sarge to
etch to have the most recent updates installed.  There are a lot of
machines out there that aren't updated against ftp.debian.org, many
aren't even updated against security.debian.org.
