Upgrade.  Each release of CRUX, accompanied by a new installation
ISO, provides a new build toolchain, and can be update-installed
on existing systems.  The kernel on the ISO is primarily for new
installations, as CRUX expects all sites to upgrade the kernel
completely separate from CRUX proper--the kernel files are not
even tracked by the package maintenance infrastructure.

 You'd better rearrange your beliefs, then.
 Because you certainly can't rearrange the universe."
