Comment (by bonefish):

 All installation methods (manual, pkgman, HaikuDepot) work the same in
 this respect. When you request the installation/activation of something,
 all or nothing will be activated. I also don't think it would be a good
 idea, when the user requests `pkgman foo` and something fails, that the
 end result is that the requested "foo" is not activated, but stuff that
 wasn't requested is.

 For the manual installation it would certainly make some sense to try to
 be more user friendly. E.g. popping up a dialog with more options --
 select which of the pending packages to activate, or move them out again
 -- would be a possibility. ATM that isn't a priority, though.
