 	One question - do you care about all updates, or updates to the 
main API?  I don't think our APIs change very often at all.  I understand 
the folks that heavily customize the stylesheets and admin templates have 
trouble staying up-to-date, though using source control for their own 
changes should make that trivial enough.  I wrote documentation on how to 
use SVK to merge local and our changes, and I have used that for some 
sites successfully.
 	If I had made lots of custom changes to LifeType, I probably 
wouldn't upgrade on a live site, unless I knew I could do it late at night 
or something when less people would notice.  But, depending on how you use 
LT's code, I'd think a "minor" upgrade, particularly the last couple, 
would be trivial to do even on a live site.
