Thank you, it's indeed pretty fast.

- if the user hits U while a refresh is in progress, the package menu
will wait until the refresh is done before actually marking the
upgrades. This is to avoid the scenario where the refresh could erase
the install marks and keep the delete marks.

That's not what I see here: U adds the marks if there's something to upgrade before the refresh, and when the latter completes, it removes them.

But speaking of this scenario, maybe this could be handled even better? Since you intend to defer adding marks to until after the refresh, why not defer calculation as well? In all likelihood, after the refresh is done, more packages will have upgrades.
