Now we just need somebody to do a decent write up on how to do it. On even just some quick copy n pasting, theres a few really good posts on the issue, and rolling them into one concise set of directions should be pretty easy.
Once I get my new distro fully up and running, I may attempt this upgrade and rollback procedure on the maverick install I currently am abandoning anyway. (That is if I can wrestle the desktop away from my fiance.) If I do, I will be sure to put together a nice how-to on it. I am curious about that savepoint thing I read about anyway, and if the thing totally bombs, oh well, I'll have crunchbang still anyway.

Edit: looks like ubuntu maverick does have a "create savepoint" feature that you can then rollback to if you do something you don't like, but it sounds like savepoints have to be created manually which I'd imagine you didn't do because you didn't know the functionality existed.
