Once setup is able to auto-update (wishlist Rob?) this'll likely make perfect
sense. Right now I'm not so sure. Now, if you downloaded and installed it as
if it were another package, you'd get a "You have to reboot" message. I guess
it could be argued that that's better than nothing, but IMHO time spent moving
it and dealing with the ramifications thereof would be better spent on
auto-update and getting it solved permanent-like.
