The option is there to allow an upgrade from a "different" (yet
rpm-based) distro, as identified by the 'product' field (2nd line) in

Looking at the 0.7 beta1 iso, it still identifies itself as "OLPC
School Server", so upgradeany is not needed to upgrade from 0.6. It is
needed to upgrade from a "vanilla" CentOS.

AFAIK, upgradeany won't force "upgrade mode" -- full install mode is
always available, and upgrade is only available if the installed
partitions have some RPM-based OS somewhere.
