I create a package for each hotfix and have a 'mother' package which 
depends on all the others. The hotfix patches reboot on exit codes 194 
(must reboot to complete installation) and 3010 (must reboot to complete 
previous installation) only. When new packages are released, I add them to 
packages.xml and add their names to the list of dependencies of the 
'mother' package. Once the 'mother' package has been installed, new 
dependencies are automatically installed.

Full details (including my packages.xml file with the hotfixes and 
'mother' package) available at http://www.sp.phy.cam.ac.uk/~rl201/wpkg/
