It's not that anaconda necessarily does 'smarter' things. It is that
anaconda is running OUTSIDE of the system. So less things can go 'boom'.

All of the items keeping you from upgrading from any release to the next
via yum or apt or up2date have all been related to changes to the
kernel.

fc1->fc2 lvm + selinux
fc2->fc3 udev + selinux

not much yum or apt or up2date can do about that.
