I.e. I start "apt-get dist-upgrade", it makes a snapshot of the hard drive, stops all IO operations from other processes, and does upgrade. If it fails, then it will just roll back to the previous snapshot.
It would be nice to avoid locking other processes, but braindeadness of Unix filesystems seems to require it :(
