Possibly worth mentioning that it does sometimes break--at least in
Fedora, I can think of a few times it's happened to me, and a few more
times where it's happened on their forums, where an update would then
fail to boot, saying, unable to locate root (or something similar) which
could be fixed by changing the UUID to /dev/sdwhatever
