Re: apt-get in scripts

I've crontabbed `DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get -qqqqq
dist-upgrade`.  I've not yet had any problems w/ it; debconf questions
should use the default, and config files should not be overwritten.  Of
course, this is w/ stable; I wouldn't trust this w/ testing/unstable.
