If it were me, I would rather fight to upgrade once, not twice.

Exactly my point, I would rather fight once to upgrade then fight once
to upgrade then have to fight again to figure out what hell broke in
the next upgrade though most of the time it can be somewhat straight
forward if treading carefully.  I'd rather it all fall down at once
during a test-run and it be fixed than me have to do those runs twice
in the same year.
