instead of having a bunch of instructions in a page for users to switch profile (sometimes they have bugs, I still did not manage to upgrade my Athlon 64 machine to the 2005.0 profile), we could have a single portagre command to do the switch, like "portage --update-profile 2005.0".
Steps to Reproduce:
1.wait for a new release
2.hope that no special instructions exist
3.find the upgrade instrucions (with or without special steps) in the website
4.do the upgrade (if no bugs block your way)
portage --update-profile 2005.0
note that it is an update-profile, not upgrade-profile, there may be sme
