Only problem I foresee would be configurations blowing it to the wind,
with such drastic changes between 7.04 and 10.* that could be the heart
of the entire problem.

If you fall back to your Debian roots (I don't know if you have any) and
do it the Debian way it would probably be much cleaner with such a big
change coming to the system, just IMO on that though.

When we upgrade so drastically (just last week on an older backup
server) we optioned to accepting all maintainer configurations (as we've
already backed /etc to diff later and adjust) and everything worked out
well.  But that was 8.10 to 10.10.
