Is it ok to use "apt-get dist-upgrade" to upgrade Feisty to Gutsy?

I try to keep track of all programs that are installed, since I don't 
find an easy way to do that using the graphical installer/upgrader, I 
usually do all the package management using apt-get and copying the 
output to a special file. 

I read that using adept manager is the recommended way, but could 
someone point to me what I loose if I use apt-get method? (having done 
the manual work of changing /apt/cache/sources.list file, which I will 
anywy since I have added many external repositories...).
