With the current order the old ones will still load.

It would be wrong, and dangerous, to look in the Unofficial library before the official one. A updated primitive could be added to the unofficial library without corresponding changes to the other files in which it is used. The Parts Update build process should ensure that the Official lbrary has a coherent set of dependent files - updated primtives and subfiles are only released along with the necessary concommitant changes to their parents.
