I don't see any reason to stop show it, if it was shown previously. Not everyone
runs --list before actual update. It can be useful to explain why the download
is sooo slow on certain packages.

Do you mean that with 'update --all --exclude afm2pl', afm2pl.win32 will still
be updated, though afm2pl is not? I hope not...
