Hi, All!

I wrote in the arch mailing list about problem with versioned libs such as
openssl and db.

When I update such lib I should update all packages that depends on it, but
pacman can not give me list of such packages.

I see I can write trivial one line script or use gtkpacman or update whole
system, but I think it is wrong when "pacman -Sy openssl db" breaks

What do you think about it?

(May be it is feature request...)
