One more argument for universal transactions:
Now it's not easy to replace a package "by hand".
For example if I want to replace mplayer with mplayer-svn I can do pacman -Rd
mplayer then pacman -S mplayer-svn, but I might have broken some deps. (Cascade
remove doesn't help here either.). With universal transaction this would be easy.
Bye, ngaba
