Last-update it's completely another story... It would tell you another
thing... (less useful, I think). Last-critical-update <version> is much
cooler... Obviously I think this won't happen unless I did it myself and
used a gun against the maintainers... I couldn't *ever* get a proposal
accepted, no matter how clever it might be... (I blame my poor use of the
language for that)... =)
