"The ususal path". Hmmm. What exactly is the upgrade path from 6.06?

If 8.04 had been LTS then I would have expected support for a direct upgrade
which does not need each successive non-LTS upgrade. If there is no direct
upgrade option then we may opt for the backup+reinstall approach, which is
something we need to start planning soon.

Some background; we chose to stick with the LTS release not because we
needed 3 years of stability, but because we couldnt keep up with a 6 month
upgrade treadmill.
