No, it won't work.

If I create a new package it means either:

1. Remove the old package first - have to re-transfer 2GB in order to install a
new package (upgrade would only transfer 100 MB or so)

2. Install a new package over a new package - not very good for maintenance -
if you remove the older package later, it will remove the data of your newer
package. Yes, one could use dependencies etc., but then, it gets more complex.

> <package id="..." revision="0.95" />

Then, our code is more complex ;)
