Maybe that a PKGBUILD runned solution, could allow to set some
pacman's config for this.
Like a field " auto-restart_daemon = 1", wich you can set to 0, if you
don't want. Same for adding user.

If the field is to 1, pacman manage it by itself, if it's set to 0,
pacman just print warning informing the user that he need to apply
change to the daemon, i.e. restart it.
