It would be useful for updates to display the list of all .pacnew changes at the end, all in one place, to make manual configuration updating easier. I'm aware I can run find /etc /boot -name '*.pacnew' after to get the same list, but if pacman is already displaying the list in pieces as it updates, it might as well withold the items until the end, so that they're all in one place.
This task depends upon
