I would think the cleanest solution would be to modify the behavior of the 
update flag, to have only effect on the first level (ie: searching which packages 
to update), but then internally remove the update flag when recursively getting 
the dependencies of those.

Of course, that would dig deep into the code and bugs and regressions are very 
possible, that is true...

I personally peeked into the code a bit, but unless we have someone who's very 
knowledgable about this code, i don't think this would go safely...
