You probably want to do it as two distinct steps to avoid some nightmarish
breakage. I'd recommend doing it before upgrading, as then you're doing it
on a system where you have more comfort, as opposed to something new.

Note that upgrading to Bookworm will force UsrMerge on you if you don't
pin it away first. That may or may not bother you, but I don't want to
touch it until it's no longer breaking dpkg, however that comes about.
