I didn't get this one, sorry =)

Well... there's no perfect solution, as I said. Proper dependency
versioning really takes a lot of time, and is often hard to do if not
specified by upstream developers, so a full -Syu has always been
suggested. Also, the beginner's guide clearly states to fix things
once in a while, because they tend to break ;-)

Anyway, I wasn't attacking you, I hope it's clear :)
