so it's about the half we had with OOo. Not a bad number.

and this is a great effort. In the past we had a web service (using a 
database) that coordinated the update rollout for each version 
number/build id. Maybe it's a good idea to create a similar service just 
to please the admin who has to service flags for each version and 
localization. I know this work can be pain in the a** and every 
automation pleased me when I did this at Sun and at Oracle.
