dist-upgrade with aptitude from sarge to etch is problematic


Although I like aptitude and I advocated its use, I have to admit I have
been using etch aptitude recently.  I am now a bit cautious about it.

I have to admit upgrading from sarge stable to etch using sarge iversion
of aptitude is a problematic as describerd in Bug#401317 if your system
has many packages installed.  Basically, you can do it but it require
too much human interventions unless some well guided procedure is


I still think the current method is not so nice.

So wait for the release note to be updated or check how this bug is
updated :-)  If I find a good way, I will add to the bug report.
