Wow, so I posted this Friday then had a long weekend and was unable to 
respond until today. This thread got way more attention than I anticipated.

Okay, so I'm to understand that I should not be concerned about schema 
changes or anything. That much I understand.

But I have to ask, why did aptitude even prompt me to enter my database 
password? It was as if I was installing the package for the first time 
and it was setting up all the tables. Shouldn't it have detected it was 
an upgrade not a fresh install? Maybe I should move these questions over 
to the Mythbuntu official forums. Just curious if any other mythbuntu 
users experience this.

Since I now have the weekly repo added I suspect I'll run into this 
again soon.
