Description of problem:
Anaconda when upgrading should list new-to-this release packages, and
allow you to select/choose from them.
The flip side is to go to the release notes, see what's been added,
then navigate through 4 CDs looking for the new packages.
Even a shell script that iterates through the list of known "new
packages", sees if they are on the install media/ does an 'RPM -Uvh'
is better than nothing. Extra credit if it ejects media/asks if there
are more CDs to scan...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Not going to happen. anaconda is going to get your system as it was
presently installed upgraded to the newer version of those packages.
More can be done after your upgrade process is done in a far saner and
easier to debug fashion.
