Should that script include a 'pkg update' before 'pkg upgrade'?
it's not a must, but I would; for "didactic" reasons, maybe ~ so people get
a better and clear understanding of a proper update/upgrade process.
clean pkg's cache (previous fetched tarballs), and/or backup installed

than upgrade the rest of the packages.
