Adrian Shmultzer has been recently adding some infrastructure in the 
sysupgrade to stop it if there are incompatible features that would 
break core functionality, so that the user won't just sysupgrade with 
the same config and land in an inaccessible device. Maybe his work 
can/should be extended to alter the creating/restoring config backups 
logic too, as it's really doing more or less the same thing already.
