update-manager merge with debian/improvements

Registered by Robbie Williamson on 2009-11-06

There was a summer of code project to modernize update-manager. This is good stuff and we should merge it back from Debian. This requires some work to move the release upgrader and the auto-upgrader tester into their own bzr repositories (but that is a good idea anyway). It also means that we need to check if the meta-release feature is implmeneted there. But it should be all nice and modular now (and trivial to extend).

On the way we should fix bug #450914 (improper auto-mark)
