I think I'll try upgrading first, because it seems feasible, and if 
problems occur, I'll do a fresh install. I'll run /ppa-purge 
ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3/, and then do the installation. I think I'm going 
to stay with GNOME 3.6 (because the older version of Nautilus has more 
of the functionality that I want). I assume Gnome3 PPA won't be there 
unless I put it in. Am I right?
