Hum, the user asked 'update --all', didn't she ? So...

By the way, it was the previous behaviour with update --all. So what
Victor asks would only be to come back to this behaviour, except that
the order of updates made would be different.

Now, I'm not sure it is technically possible. First, maybe it would
imply too many changes in tlmgr's code. Second, on windows since we
can't change the tlmgr while it's running, you'll have to close and
rerun tlmgr anyway in order for the tlmgr update t be effective before
the other updates are done.
