When to use 'portupgrade -R'

I've run into some problems using 'portupgrade -R' so I'm wondering if just
using 'portupgrade' is good enough in most cases.  I don't want a port to be
upgraded without NECESSARY dependencies, but I don't want minor upgrades
done UNNECESSARILY that might cause inconsistencies in the database.
