I am all for simple upgrades - the closer we can get it to a single
button-push for obvious upgrades like 1.8->1.8.1, the happier I'd be.

Is it feasible to run it in a vkernel? External bandwidth, rather than
CPU or disk, is probably the choke point, so I would think there wouldn't
be much of a tradeoff of performance vs. security.
