The easiest way to do this is to just take the etcd package in stretch and include it in our repository as-is.

This will mean that we should, in order:

  1. remove etcdctl package declarations from puppet, substitute with the etcd package itself where appropriate
  2. apt-get remove etcdctl
  3. apt-get install the new etcd package.

While the majority of machines is on etcd 2.0, the newer servers will just not publish their url to the cluster; as soon as the proportion is reverted, the 2.2 ones will publish themselves and the 2.0 will fail.

I did test this in labs, what I didn't test is what happens if someone tries to write to the cluster while we're upgrading. I'm going to test that as well to make sure no harm is done.
