It doesn't really help you when your data is modified by the update.


So if my "LVM snapshot and revert entire Fedora installed" idea is
dismissed as "still not perfect", why is "just revert one package"
pushed as a legitimate alternative?

They both suffer from the same problem -- new packages may cause
changes in data that are not reversibly compatible with the old
package, and mere package rollback is not useful.


Sorry, I didn't say your idea was dismissed. Just more complicated b/c of all the space the user has to allocate to it.

There's no perfect.

we're just going for 'good enough', really.
