The new version of tlmgr I checked in just 20min ago I was talking about.
Probably not what you have.

But please IF you fetch it, you also need the files from
especially TLMedia.pm, TLPOBJ.pm, and TLUtils.pm, otherwise everything 
will break. 

But that would give you tests for:
- safer update (make tar before removing package)
- --dry-run echos exactely what real run does (besides post install stuff)
- real update (with or without --dry-run) echos revision numbers.
