Why would this need a command-line update utility for this? In fact, I would argue
that one should use the automatic updates scheduler (in M3) to periodically be notified
about available updates.
Currently the problem is more about the way nested feature updates work (or rather don't :-)
but there is some investigation work on making patches easier to create and install.
