No, that would only work for people who haven't downloaded it yet, or
who explicitly reinstall.

A version bump seems like the best way to ensure it gets picked up
without any effort on the user's part.  Too bad we don't have anything
comparable to yum's presto mode that makes delta downloading easier for
simple things like adding an x bit.
