Actually, the latest setup.pl (upgrade script) does bail with a more
descriptive error message if the pre-up tests fail.  It doesn't
actually fix those errors.  I have a _very_ old database that needed
significant repairs (I had orphans and non-unique values in columns
that are, and always should have been, unique, and more).  Fixing an
old database is very problematic, and must be done by hand.
Automating this could cause more problems than it solves.

well, in some cases, that's done.
