Read again the Arch way: You make it what you want. We don't know if
you install a pkg like dovecot to work on its documentation, to code
stuff depending on its libs or headers or if you want to use it in
its main direction as a daemon.

Why should we make Arch more and more complex just to satisfy a few of
you with things that are almost self explaining???

If you run a daemon or application that gets upgraded it's first your
fault you didn't stop it before and 2nd your task to decide after
reading the Changelog/commit-list if you have to solve your mistake by
restarting the stuff.
