 	Dear Tex-Live: Ever since changing over from tetex to texlive, I 
have found no need for MikTex anymore. Now I am running the 2008 beta 
version and am quite satisfied with it. However, as you must surely be 
aware from the comments of other users, the absence of an update mechanism 
in ./install-tl is a big disadvantage and is the one area that MikTex can 
be badly missed by many users.
 	Can we have an online update facility in texlive that will 
download and install only those packages that have undergone a revision 
since the last install?
 	Thank you.
