Quoting Greg Knaddison <greg at pingvox.com>:

> 1. Download the new version (i.e. 6.x)
> 2. Download the 6.x compatible version of all my contribs (fix or
> remove the ones that haven't been upgraded)
> 3. Install the new core and contrib modules
> 4. Run update.php which will do all of core and contrib at the same
> time which, in my experience, causes fewer errors

This sounds logical to me and basically how I've done my updates.  The 
.install of each module core or contrib should provide updates to stale 
variables or anything else that it needs to upgrade.
