...though if your apps have the broker addresses hard-coded then you'll 
have to employ some DNS or even IP trickery to make the switch to the 
new cluster.

Longer term you may want to look at connecting a set of brokers via 
federation of shovel; you'd then be able to upgrade the individual 
brokers independently. Though whether employing federation/shovel is 
feasible very much depends on your app.
