what upgrades require reboot?

I am curious about when you need to reboot after upgrading packages.  I
assume if I upgrade a package like gnome-libs, I should restart gnome
but it won't require rebooting.  On the other hand, I assume that
upgrading packages like bash and libc will require a reboot.  Is that
true?  How can I know when I should reboot or not?
