Do it like yaourt (it prompts the user when doing -Syu) and open an
editor with one package per line. If a user doesn't want to install a
certain package he can just delete or comment(#) the line.

I don't know how to handle dependencies here (foo needs bar, but the
user removes bar), but I think you could just ask for those with a
simple yes/no afterwards.
