 What about manual upgrade installation?
 (i.e. extracting all sets except etc,
  then updating etc and others by postinstall(8))
 I'm afraid certain old users also want "postinstall -s etc.tgz fix"
 just works as the past releases, without manually extracting
 "those two files" from etc.tgz.
 IMO postintall(8) itself should install (update) /var/db/obsolete
 (and other necessary files) from ${ETCTGZDIR} in TGZMODE case,
 rather than sysinst(8).
