rP503385: Use UCL for pkg-message

Remain backward compatible but use ucl for the pkg-messages, which allows to:

  • append messages one after the other
  • only print message on delete, install, upgrade from a version to another

If pkg-message starts with a [ we consider it should be a valid ucl file

The format is the following:
{ message: "Always print" },
{ message: "package being removed", type: remove },
{ message: "package being installed", type: install },
{ message: "package is being upgraded", type: upgrade },
{ message: "Upgrading from lower than 1.0", maximum_version: "1.0", type: upgrade },
{ message: "Upgrading from higher than 1.0", minimum_version: "1.0", type: upgrade },
{ message: "Upgrading from >1.0 < 3.0", maximum_version: "3.0", minimum_version: "1.0",

Because it is ucl one can use some sugar like:
{ message = <<EOD
message 'with fancy things'

  • Remove now useless newlines.
  • This too should be ucl.
  • The file is never empty now, but with no messages, it is ok.
  • Don't use echo flags.
  • Put the deprecation date message with the deprecation message.
