Plugin update progress dialog steals focus

Have your Desktop Environment/Window Manager set up to not give focus to new windows
Open the plugin manager
Install/Update multiple plugins at once
The dialog that pops up to show download progress will steal focus from the user if they switched to a different window in the meantime
This just made me cancel (or worse?) a plugin update because I was typing in another window and the dialog stole focus

I got it. If you run "upgrade all upgradable plugins", for each of them a new modal modal window will be opened and closed.
So you run the upgrades, switch to another application, and don't expect QGIS will start popping up again and again.

Unfortunately personally I have no time resources to improve this behaviour in the nearest future, but I'll keep it in mind. In a long-term solution I guess there will be no modal windows and installing/uninstalling/upgrading will be moved to background and the task manager.
