Download win_updates only.
For some use cases (low bandwidth, etc), it can be desirable to create a play which only (searches and) downloads the Windows updates. Where a later play only installs them. This saves time for our precious and relatively small maintenance windows.

Like the 'state: searched' feature, this is mainly a premature exit, since the module currently searches, downloads, installs and reboots.
Caveat: changed is True whenever there are updates available, which are at this point already downloaded. Running the module twice, will return changed=True, even when no new updates have physically been downloaded.
