Well worth doing. That approach has saved my neck a few times when things have
gone pear shaped with dependency issues after pkg upgrade has reinstalled a few
I normally create a new BE and chroot into it to do the upgrade. That way the running
system isn't interrupted even if the upgrade goes disastrously wrong. If the upgrade
looks OK it's then just a case of rebooting with the new BE at a convenient time.
