pacman option to update package before others

Was there at some point an option to specify which packages should be installed before others?  I read through the pacman.conf manpage but found nothing.

Use case: archlinux-keyring updates should occur before packages signed with new/updated keys are updated or else the update will fail.

# pacman -Syu
...
(83/83) checking keys in keyring                                             [############################################] 100%
downloading required keys...
:: Import PGP key 139B09DA5BF0D338, "David Runge <dvzrv@archlinux.org>"? [Y/n] 
error: key "139B09DA5BF0D338" could not be looked up remotely
error: required key missing from keyring
error: failed to commit transaction (unexpected error)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the option should exist.

Re: pacman option to update package before others

Maybe off-topic, but there's a thread on arch-dev-public concerning the archlinux-keyring issues
