True. If there was an easy way of backing up everything important
under /etc, and merging it back into the new /etc, I'd do fresh installs
every time. Being as it is, I tend to upgrade. In fact I upgraded
yesterday using yum, and that worked surprisingly well (after a few
tries and fixed dependencies).

Speaking of backups: there's also /var, with potentially lots of
valuable stuff in www, yp, spool, etc...
