As I already explained above - the current description of -Qu is
cofusing and wrong, IMO.

And having -Qu just because you don't want to press N after -Su is
..ehm... redundant.

Wouldn't be better that -Qu was modified as I suggested above? - which
is essentially listing all installed packages that are outdated.
