It seems wrong to me to let so many people perform the same step by hand 
when we could have done it automatically and completely safe.

We have to think about what's simpler here: Have a short and safe 
sed-line in post_upgrade, or have a shitload of users spend their time 
booting with live CDs and editing files because they weren't careful. 
This thing is a huge breaker.
