Well I am not sure Dan would like that after what he said here :

The impression I got from this is to try to limit the install messages
as much as possible, only keeping the critical stuff that would
prevent pacman from functioning properly.
This is not the case here, pacman 3.2 still works properly with the old config.

Then it is the user's duty to make sure all .pacnew files are merged.
Ideally, just after an upgrade.
But running pacdiff regularly to make sure nothing was missed does not
hurt either.
