This is a slight exaggeration, as this do not really work very
seamlessly for packages where the configuration was changed.  I get a
lot of conffile questions during upgrades when trying to upgrade my
woody servers to sarge, and I would not call that seamless.

And for desktops, I ran into several problems with the package
selection when upgrading.  apt-get and aptitude wanted to remove
several of the packages instead instead of upgrading them.
