Exactly, PostGIS makes it easier to upgrade !
The problem is only PostgreSQL which tries to make it harder..

I actually wonder if we could have a single --next script
so you could always do:

 ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE to 'next';

And then the script would re-set pg_extension version
to drop the "next" and keep the "final".

I know, very cowboysh, but I'm really sick of all those files,
even if they're now symlinks...
