And perhaps this is exactly all they will be able to give you. If you 
perform an upgrade in place, it presumes that the upgraded files will 
occupy the same or less space than those already there. If you have 
almost filled up your internal flash with user-installed apps, then 
there will need to be some way of deciding what you should delete/not 
install to get the upgrade to work.

We should add to this the fact that (certainly in the old days) jffs2 
required some reboots and free space to get it to reclaim the space 
used by deleted files. This will become an issue if you want to do an 
upgrade in place and have very little free space.
