warning about latest current aaa_elflibs-10.1.0

Hi, i'm looking at the latest current released today, and there seems to be a warning in updating elflibs
a/aaa_elflibs-10.1.0-i486-1.tgz: Updated initial library collection.
Please remember that (as the package description notes) this package is only intended to be installed at an initial installation, and attempting to "upgrade" it later may copy over newer libraries and cause damage to your system.
Some broken upgrade tools haven't learned this fact...
Just to double check.. I should NOT install this update with swaret or slapt-get. Right? Also, shall i not install aaa_base-10.1.0 for compatibility reasons?

And how can i, in the end, upgrade to them? I meen, i don't want to be stuck at 10.0 unless a fresh reinstall..

Thanks =)

You don't need to upgrade it, if you look closely at the file list this package install, you will
find that you have most recent lib than which it provides.

Its purpose is to install basics libs on a system that hasn't them. If you install it, you will have to
upgrade all packages with libs overwritten by this package

Since I've already rushed ahead and did it

So, for the newbie in me that has already upgraded this morning without waiting to investigate, what exactly do I need to do now? What libs will be overwritten. This may actually be for the best for me because a previous update/upgrade screwed things up when my hard drive ran out of space. My updates are now downloaded to a different partition. Live and learn.
