Reinstallation may be required more often, and we expect that packages
need to be reinstalled at least if x or y are increased in a new R-x.y.z
release. In rather rare cases this also happens for patch level updates.
There are examples where a reinstalltion is not required that often, but
that is not guaranteed.
