OpenBSD binary upgrades (snapshots) are superfast. Compared to the
FreeBSD boxen I was keeping, I was startled at how easy it was.
You can boot into bsd.rd (ram disk kernel) or upgrade in-place; update
etc files (mergemaster); upgrade packages (binary, no compile time);
then reboot to freshness. It barely takes a few minutes.
