Hmm.  Did the automatic process actually work for anyone?

At some point my CentOS mirror was rewritten such that the 3.3/os
directory vanished, which broke upgrades/updates completely.  By
commenting out the [base] section in a yum.conf file I could get
updates back, but still no easy upgrade path.

By following the instructions in the article mentioned I could
upgrade to 3.4, but no magic upgrade path has happened yet.
