Pacman actually already does this, e.g. "pacman -S haskell-foo<=1.5" works. I
had only tested it with "-Si" for some reason.

Yet another approach is to simply provide a tool that can check the local
database for inconsistencies by comparing the install dates against the
dependency graph.

It could be integrated into bauerbill but I would prefer to wait until I can
release its replacement as I hope to include hooks in it that the user can use
to run custom code for such things.
