=8^)  I can identify.  At least with Gentoo, however, you know that every
package that's installed means a compile of it and possibly dependencies
every time there's an update.  That means every time you see something on
the update list is a chance to remove it, as doing so is almost certainly
going to be faster than compiling the update.  For things like knode that
have been updated several times since I used it once, and where an update
usually comes with an update (and compile) of most of the hundred-ish
other KDE packages I have installed since KDE bumps versions of all their
core packages at once, that's a pretty big cost.

BTW, it's unmerged, now, and pan 0.116 is merged.  =8^)
