If your bootloader is unlocked then rooting is as easy as flashing CWM and flashing the SU binary.
If the bootloader is locked then the changelog indicates that you will not longer be able to use fastboot boot to load CWM and root that way.
With that said, I applied a lot of updates on my Nexus One without losing root and kept the boot loader locked the whole time. You'll need to pay attention, but you should be able to do the following.
Download the SU binary zip and place that on the SD card.
The OTA will not overwrite CWM until it actually boots. So, after you apply the OTA boot directly into recovery and apply the SU zip. This will give you root. (Just pay attention and hold vol up when it goes to reboot)
When you subsequently load up android CWM will be overwritten. At this point you can use the flash_image binary to manually flash CWM to recovery (or potentially ROM Manager).
