I thought we just established that calling ldconfig during 'postinst
upgrade' is wrong. Therefore, "all packages simply doing a ldconfig
in their postinst" (as you wrote, and which I interpreted as "without
checking their arguments") are doing the wrong thing during an upgrade.
If that is not what you meant, please clarify. I don't see how the
proposed change causes a problem for packages that aren't already doing
calling ldconfig inappropriately.
