Pear Updates - Will they keep the install clean?

I was wondering exactly how Pear updates will work, especially in regards to keeping files / folders organized. Is it akin to svn in that it will delete old files that are un-needed and rename files that have been renamed and delete the old ones? It would be nice if it actually synced. For example, when 1.0 comes around, and I use Pear to update, will it have old Beta stuff lying around?

Also, how will it handle themes in this regard? I would assume they don’t get overwritten?

I have that same question in regard to svn updates. I have some, but not extensive experience with svn. I am wondering what the best way to go about using it to keep the app itself up to date, but also using it to develop my themes.

Aching for 1.0

I was wondering the same thing. A clean install and a PEAR update to 0.8.17240 costs around 120MB, which is a significant amount on my 200MB account. Are there (temporary) folders that can be deleted without messing up my Magento installation?
