Given the complexity of it and the multiple places this could give you
trouble if you're not careful, I wouldn't suggest it as a general best
practice.  My "best practice" suggestion would be to have a pre-production
environment where you can test the upgrade, and then do a normal rolling
upgrade in production.  (I'm sure ops guys have a bag of different
preferred techniques.)
