I use aptitude not apt-get, so cannot comment on apt-get, but the "aptitude 
full-upgrade" command does nothing without asking first, so there is no 
question of it removing "half your system before you can say OMG".  I 
therefore only use safe upgrade when I want to do at least a partial upgrade 
but do not want something specific removed which full-upgrade is threatening 
to remove.
