I review each one, and usually end up keeping the old version for most
(since that has my customizations), but I look for changes made in the
new version of IC to see if there's anything I'm interested in.  Being
as I'm the one that has made all those changes to begin with it's fairly
easy for me.

Nope, not that I'm aware of.

If you find you've really mucked things up you can always restore a
backup copy of the mv_metadata.asc file to the products directory (or
even the db version of that file).
