This is actually a possible solution. The problem would be to
extract the file from the archive etc. (you cannot usually
overwrite the executable that is currently running); but this way
the costumer is forced to be connected to the internet etc. (in
this particula case it wouldn't be a problem).
Anyway my costumer might just prefer to avoid using a product that
he doesn't know about *AND* that gives him unnnecessary troubles
(what if RT posts the update two days later than the expiration
date? what if rebol.com is down?)...
