Bug Description

Binary package hint: powernap

The new PowerNap configuration file format has changed extensively from the one in previous Ubuntu version.

preinst/postinst logic is required to handle the upgrades and not lose a custom configuration file, for which in such case a copy of the old configuration file should be kept for manual merge of configuration. The logic will only upgrade configuration files when upgrading from versions < of 2.0.

If the configuration is left untouched, then the upgrade is seamless.
