[kwlug-disc] is it just me, or is debian package management painful?

  i already assumed that that size of upgrade would cause massive
breakage.  but does debian upgrade have the ability to let me upgrade
from, say, 3.1 to 3.2?  fix breakage.  3.2 to 3.3.  etc, etc.  it
would actually be trememdously useful for me to be able to do that,
even if it takes a little longer.
