Right you are.  I thought I had mentioned it already, but forgot since I
can't post from work.

Yes.

I've tested that again today.  The last package gets orphaned if there
is only a current section.  I believe that the last section is also not
processed, so in the standard Cygwin installation you'd not be able to
see the previous version of _update-info-dir.

All my packages only have a single (curr) version in the rewritten
setup.ini as I have different setup.ini files (or rather directories
they are in) for keeping older states of the installation around.  Some
of the processing seems to be associated with seeing the start of a new
package or a new section as I can make it process the last package
correctly if I either start a dummy package with absolutely no content
(just the "@ packagename" line) or a dummy section (either [prev] or
[test] works, again with no content).
