No, that probably won't work.  We changed the modules a lot.

The closest to an upgrade we have in the alpha series at the moment is
to backup your databases, re-run the provision script with
--partitions-only and then restore secrets.ldb from the backup.  

This changes the configuration for the modules, but leaves all the data

However, this isn't the same as a fresh provision.  I need some help to
create a good upgrade script - the problem is 'what do you want to
upgrade, what do you want to keep'.
