Also, pacsnap does a good enough job for me. Which is to take maybe
70% of the risk out of upgrading -- sure, a reversion won't work all the
time, but I need it rarely enough that the low overhead of pacsnap is
more convenient for me than the risk of living with a partly-broken
system until it's fixed upstream is bad.
That being said, if someone polishes btrfs snapshots, I might use that
instead. (Once I switch to btrfs, that is.)
