OK, rereading I see that now.  I was assuming that the central
system would attempt to [get] leverage [from] the user updates 
when the time came to update as root, but this was
never stated. To implement it would probably be useless anyway,
since the user files could now be out of date, as well.

Thanks, sorry for the noise :-)
