Neat idea - another option would be to have a feature that delayed installation until the user logged off / shut down - sort of like what Windows Updates does now w/ XP SP2 ("Install Updates and shut down").
  My 2 cents...

I am trying out wpkg, and I have a suggestion: on our network I would 
like users to be able to delay software installations. Imagine a 
scenario where the software change is not critical, but the person may 
be in a hurry and unnecessarily inconvenienced by waiting. Therefore, I 
propose extra options in packages such as these:

this line only -->

With these options, the user would see a message such as this:

The following changes should be made to your system:
Install-Putty-May be delayed 5 more times until December 21, 2005
Remove-AVG Antivirus-Required
Some of these changes may be delayed. Would you like to make all 
these changes now? yes/no

Also, it would be sufficient to implement just the max_date option and 
not also max_times.
