Quick question to clarify: this is still a fairly risky procedure, no?  Some partition on the machine has to be stable enough to persist the mfsroot for reboot/install, right?

I've never put mfsroot and bare-metal upgrades/installs in the same thought before... so this is both intriguing and scary :)
