Please describe use cases of binary packages in ${PACKAGES} after installation,
for over 50% users and not rare case.

It's the same reason why people wanted pkg_tarup. My point is just that
it doesn't make sense to force people to install pkg_tarup for replace
when preserving the binary packages would serve the same purpose better.

There is no guarantee that binary package for currently installed one
is in ${PACKAGES} and no way to confirm it...
