I changed the line to just be plain etc-update and it worked fine after
that, but again it didn't request any input, just run straight thru.
One question about the behavior tho. Say I have pending updates for
etc-update, and some of them I want to reject, but I haven't run
etc-update and put them in yet.
Then I upgrade baselayout, and it (at least looking at the code)
deprotected all the changes and forces ALL changes in without question.
Surely this is not a desirable effect?
It should either:
1. force in only it's own changes, and leave other stuff alone
2. behave like normal etc-update for everything
3. refuse to apply itself until the user has done etc-update
+1 for #3 here, +0.5 for #2
