FWIW this is how the Debian package handles upgrades of this nature -
it has little bits of shell script which incrementally upgrade the
files and directories on disk, applying each inter version change one at
a time.  I would prefer to continue doing that since it strikes me as a
vastly more robust approach to the problem.  You can verify each update
as it is performed and there is much less chance of bit rot.
