[Bug 315896] Re: freeradius upgrade broken in hardy backports

Performing automated upgrades across major revision numbers of a program
isn't recommended.

There are a large number of changes in the configuration files and in
their processing from version 1.1.x to version 2.1.x.  Writing scripts
to do automated upgrades is extremely difficult.  The upgrade process
MUST be done by hand.

My suggestion is that the 2.1.x installer check the major version number
of the previously installed package.  If they don't match, it should
refuse to do the upgrade.
