I also have the feeling that the reboot messages are getting a little
bit out of hand recently.

This might be because of the stickiness of these flag, but it also
might be used more now than before. Except of kernel updates none of
these should really be necessary.

Is there any way to get some statistics out of the update system how
many package updates require a reboot per day ?
