Hi !

Thinking more deeply, I think that a script (or anything else) that could do
upgrading is the best way. This script should verify version numbers of
important files (like some in /etc), saying if these or these program has
moved, listing files would could be deleted, etc...
With that, anyone could upgrade from 1.xx to 1.4 and get a CLEAN 1.4
