It shouldn't matter which comes first. It seems to me that the plugin is
easily confused though.  It's my recollection that the error messages
left by the plugin make it much easier to build the --exclude line as it
has always been that some program already installed will break due to
the program waiting to be installed that throws the error. OTOH a
program that can't meet its dependencies will be skipped properly.  It
might be that the plugin is not acting properly though - I may do some
looking for docs & maybe file a BZ unless someone does it first.
