:What exactly should be in /etc/.release? Only "1.10" or "1.11" would not 
:be enough IMO.
:I'm mostly concerned about people tracking HEAD and harming their 
:systems because they do make upgrade before installworld with a new file 
:list at some time where it removes some sensitive stuff which needs the 
:_really latest_ HEAD installed.

    That's a good point.  Ok... but move that installed list of files
    out of /var/db and into /etc.   In fact, lets create an /etc/upgrade
    directory and stow it in there.  /etc/upgrade/Makefile*.inc, 
    /etc/upgrade/release, etc.... might be a good framework for any
    future features we add to the upgrade system.
