This was discussed multiple times, news items are to be read.
Users ignore elog informations/web announcements/... so it was agreed that
news item is agressive enough to user so they must read it.
If they don't do so it is just their fault.
And no runtime changing for portage where it expect some input is seriously
stupid idea, most of us script updates in batch and noone would actualy read
Never the less as I said we expect user to read that stuff and if he does not
he is on his own due to his dumb approach.
