Everything (these) users want is to have the latest packages installed
on their systems.

Use case:
1.) Show all packages from PacKman
2.) Click "All Packages"
3.) Select "Upgrade all (if possible, of course)"

Now what's "if possible, of course" supposed to mean ?

The point is, that the sat-solver provides just this functionality,
'compute all possible updates'. The result is 'solved', you won't get
any dependency conflicts.

Sat-solver also provides SOLVER_INSTALL_SOLVABLE_UPDATE to request
the update of one solvable (within the limits of the policies). I'm
thinking about using this to implement Solvable::freshen().
