Not true. An update can fail midstream. Just hit Ctrl+c in the middle of
an update, and find out. However, updates on files won't be applied
unless the entire update *for that file* is present. So you don't have
to worry about things like 2 of 3 lines being inserted, or something
bizarre like that.
