This has nothing to do with package manager or not because dpkg or rpm can do
this without a problem.

I have never had problems with a ssh session if i update ssh on my opensuse
server and the specfile has this inside:
It is okay if you say KISS is the goal but inside of a *.install file you could
do the same as in a specfile of a rpm package and no one would call rpm a
"system administration tool".-)
And before one of the arch devs could misunderstood my lines: I can live
perfectly that we the users do this by ourselves instead that the packaging
comsumes more and more time.
See you, Attila
