pup has a nice functionality in having dialog box "Rebooting 
required? [Now] [Later]" when some low-level important packages 
(e.g., kernel, glibc, hal, etc.) are upgraded. I am not sure 
(will investigate) whether pup gets information about which 
packages requires restart somewhere from some metada or it has 
hard-wired list in its code, but I think either way it could he 
helpful extension for PK, especially considering that PK should 
be for non-geeky users who doesn't bear this list in their mind.
