Look, I don't see what you are getting at here. I am not blaming
anyone for anything. I am _not_ running anything like a production
environment. Again, this is my personal desktop computer. I cannot
spent much time for every update that shows up. And, as I said before,
we live in a world where remote security flaws appear almost daily and
thus, as a responsible person, you have to update often. It would be
nice if the packaging system would support me doing this and not "run
me" as it did in this special case.

I am merely _suggesting_ to implement a warning message.
It certainly _is_ easy to miss something in the "pacman -Suy" output.
As such, I think this would be beneficial to everybody running
postgresql, be it on a single desktop computer or a farm of servers.
