Child Themes should be the answer to all this and if I were you I would make
that your number one priority and letting know your users that in the order
to keep their "edits" Child Themes are the only way to preserve that. Take a
look at http://chrishajer.com/wordpress/upgrade-plugin.png and see what they
have done with this, maybe you can do something similar.
