Yeah, I think Peter is correct.  The intention was that the InstallMgr 
class would be smart about the upgrade path across module names if the 
supersedes directive was used.  I'm not sure there is a frontend issue 
here-- the code should probably all be down in the engine level.  I 
don't remember writing or receiving contributed code to handle this, so 
it's likely not yet implemented, but someone might speak up and remind 
me otherwise.
