 Working as intended. More broadly, the optimal behaviour would of course
 be not to upgrade installed dependencies on install unless needed. The
 obvious problem is how you can determine whether it is needed. We have no
 way of doing so, therefore we play it safe. You are free to use -n to
 override this behaviour if you are willing to accept the risk of breakage.
