Cool, I really like this idea.

Firewalls could use this stuff too, I guess.

I'd prefer update-resolv like
 update-alternatives             update-initrd
 update-catalog                  update-ispell-dictionary
 update-default-aspell           update-menus
 update-default-ispell           update-mime
to name just a few.
