For breezy to dapper upgrades, update-manager was suggested over apt-get
dist-upgrade.  What does update-manager do that apt-get doesn't?  If
update-manager is required to preform a distribution upgrade, perhaps a
command-line version should be created, or apt should be reworked to
handle ubuntu upgrades properly.

God bless,
