That's good. Even though I had seen the announcement on both the web
site and the mailing list, I trusted to 'lvu expired' to update my box
and of course lunar-init didn't show up so I didn't install it when I
should have done. My fault I didn't follow the instructions though.

I was going to ask whether it would make sense to have dummy modules
such as 'run-lunar-update' or 'see-lunar-announcements' that can be
updated when required, which will show up in 'lvu expired' and which
require some manual intervention before any critical module updates
can be installed. I'm curious to see what your failsafe solution will
look like.
