And what should be the behaviour in this one? Clearly -y assuming Y for
the plugin in question is very dangerous because it would replace all
your configs that were updated in the upgraded package(s).
I agree it would make sense for this plugin to be turned off by
default, it's dangerous if used without caution, although I also agree
it can be a very useful plugin, cause you can spot config changes in
nicely formatted way (diff) during upgrade(s) and see if there's any
problem if left without attention (our policies for updates and update
QA are one of the best out there, but there can still be some slippage
or during distro upgrade this can happen as well...).
