[OS X TeX] Updating GW distribution

I've not updated my teTeX distribution via GW's installer (v.2 circa 
2002) in sometime and wish to do so now.

Would that it were possible to update packages and documentation that 
have changed or been added rather than reinstalling the entire 
multi-megabyte distribution. I suspect this is not possible and if 
anyone wants to confirm this (or pleasantly surprise me otherwise) I'd 
be grateful.

Can someone remind me of the special care one needs to take on a 
re-install (actually, an update) as opposed to first install or point 
me to an appropriate doc with this information? I could not find this 
point discussed at http://www.rna.nl/tex.html. I mainly wonder whether 
the directory structure will be automatically updated or an entire new 
structure installed in addition in  ~/Library/

Many thanks,

David Oliver
