True.  I usually upgrade systems that way anyway: I keep track of my
build procedure and just re-apply it on the newly-installed system.
But yeah, for anybody who doesn't operate that way, this is an
occasional hassle.  I should also mention that Mint uses web forums (urgh)
as opposed to mailing lists, which are ridiculously better.
