If it works, do not fix it!

Actually, I'm facing exactly the same problem now: I want to upgrade 
6.2-RELEASE to something (8.0?) newer.

Since I don't have spare machine for tests, I'm playing now with 
VirtualBox (hosted on Linux). I'd like to test upgrade using 
cvsup/buildworld. After I will success on virtualbox I'll perform the 
same path on real machine.
