This is nice, I've been confused by the old behavior before.

One thing that doesn't work (in either the old or current setup) is
paths with "." or "..":
  raco pkg install ./
  raco pkg install ../

Also, is there any reason why the `update` command can't work with
packages from local directories? Or should I just use "--link" for these
