In the course of a normal update (adding php5-xsl) we were a little worried by the following messages:

The following extra packages will be installed:
  aegir-provision (..other php5 updates..)
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  aegir aegir-hostmaster (..other php5 updates..)
This - threatening to REMOVE an existing working Aegir infrastructure was a bit scary. Even if it will (probably?) be replaced. The original install was from koumbit yeah.

I'd have liked to see a message on this wiki page saying "If you get this message, it's OK to say 'Yes' and everything will be replaced safely". If that is the case... It is worrying. Can this be clarified?
