This message hasn't shown up in my mailbox yet...strange.

The tlmgr program does use wget.universal-darwin to download.  I think  
it runs wget at least once per updated package, so you potentially  
have a /lot/ of small downloads in a short time.

TLU itself also makes connections via Apple frameworks (for update  
checking, mirror sanity check, and downloading the tlmgr  
infrastructure updates).
