+1. I have a Hardy upgrade from Gutsy, and a fresh install. The upgrade broke 
because the upgrade path of the package plucker was broken. I reported it, 
they fixed it, and the fix is already in hardy-updates. Note this package is 
in universe, so this never happens on Gutsy default installs.

The fresh isntallation, as expected, went smooth.

Has this thread enough success stories for you, Karl?
