Easiest upgrade ever

I keep my main system updated almost to the day. I have had GCC 4.1.1 as my main compiler for some time now so that wasn't a big issue for me. I just relinked my profile to 2006.1 and "emerge -auDv world". Not too bad at all. It makes me cringe when I think of the last time I upgraded a binary system, which was from Redhat 8 to Redhat 9. That was a nightmare. It never quite worked right and I had to backup and reinstall anyway. I have had the same Gentoo system running for three years now.
