I would like to go this route to migrate some production servers that

Yeah, some kind of more or less convenient upgrade path for FreeBSD 4 
users would be nice to have.
Where is the big difference between doing a buildworld, buildkernel, 
installkernel, installworld or doing a binary update?  Maybe we should 
encourage people to do this instead?  I even thought the installer had an 
option.  If not, "just" copying over /kernel /modules /usr /bin/sbin and 
updating /etc should do it as well, right?
