Seamless migration from Likewise Open 4.x/5.0 to 5.4

Registered by Thierry Carrez on 2009-11-09

Karmic has Likewise-Open 4.1 in main and 5.0 in universe, because migrating from 4.1 to 5.0 requires manually leaving / rejoining the domain. For Lucid we should push the following goals:
 * Upgrade to a single 5.4 version in main (that includes using system libraries rather than private patched copies)
 * Provide a 5.0 migration path for seamless upgrade experience from karmic likewise-open5
 * Provide a 4.1 migration path for seamless upgrade experience from karmic
 * Provide a 4.0.5 migration path for seamless upgrade experience from hardy
