That script we have already prepared, that is the "Final Installation
Step" shortcut which links to a .bat file in tlpkg/temp.

But we do not "please restart" ...

The problem is not the wrapper, the problem is the perl code itself.
Since all the updating is done via the perl code, all the perl modules
are opened by the perl interpreter, so *nothing* can be replaced.

Something left over from preparing or eating a meal, which you store
in the fridge despite the fact that you know full well you will never
ever use it.
