do what you think is good for you if YOU can't be sure what you do
there where i work i test updates and look at the user-tables
and that is why i fixed problems where root did not have the
right permissions after upgrade to 5.1 what was not corrected
with "mysql_upgrade" an rolled out without any problems
the same way i currently roll out fedora 15 on 24 production
servers because i know what i do and have the infrastructure
to prepare such major-upgrades to do them finally live after
all tests are successfull and the local cach- and internal-repos
so please do not tell other peopole on what knowledge they can rely
