I thought of this. I try to explain it further down.

I think the more changes in basic packages as gtk+<-> gtk+-fastscaling  
there are, the superior the packetmanagement has to be. Resolving the  
dependencies, removing old files and so on. I am not sure if opkg can  
do the job perfectly that you have the same result as a clean image  
especially when the difference gets bigger. That is why I tend to  
backup my files and flash the rootfs regularly instead of upgrade it.
