This is a different problem. Bash 3 only had "readline" as a dependency,
now the new readline package fulfills that. Now another package had
"readline>=6" as a dependency, readline 6 was pulled, but pacman thought
that bash 3 was okay (as it only has a "readline" dep).
Solutions for this are not that easy, we might make packages provide
certain sonames and make other packages depend on those, but this will
only solve the problem for new packages.
