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
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.
