Did you consider making package.el itself a :core package of GNU ELPA,
and releasing a fixed package-1.0.2 there?  This would avoid the need
for advice, and M-x package-menu-mark-upgrades would flag 1.0.2 as an
upgrade.  However, I'm not sure what would happen if package-1.0.1 tried
to upgrade itself to package-1.0.2.
