I'm pretty sure it ran last when I first tested it. I haven't been
testing it throughout the setup.exe development process, though.
However, unless packages are creating .info files on the fly, I don't
see why it matters if it runs last. .info files which are created on
the fly wouldn't be caught anyway.
