I just downloaded the 2008.06 iso and could successfully issue an -Syu. (I
have now added pacman-mirrorlist to the packages that should be kept in gz
I also tried a iso from 2007 but that kernel glibc wasn't compatible. But such
an old setup could only be updated from a newer live cd anyway.
In other words: the current solutions ensures that there is still a smooth
update path for systems that haven't seen an -Syu for about two years. I
really don't think we should worry here.
