Upgrade issue

I just ran the RedHat rpm to upgrade to 3.14-1.  Unfortunately, your rpm
doesn't follow the standard of making backups of files that it would
overwrite (I think it's a standard, but maybe I'm just spoiled =).  The
hassle this morning is my fault for missing the directory tree on my
backups, but it would be nice if the mailscanner rpm either made backups
or warned the user that the files would be overwritten.  The files in
/usr/local/MailScanner/etc and /etc/rc.d/init.d/mailscanner are the ones
I'm having to work through reconfiguring now.
