Hosts with many less domains than this have implemented Fantastico,  
that for some it's good enough. I personally have found enough  
trouble with permissions when mixing automated solutions with user- 
installed ones that I truly don't know what advice to give.

I would implement "Instant Update" in the core, though, at the very  
least. This would mean that users would rely on Fantastico only for  
the first installation. It wouldn't mangle their user-owned  
modifications later on when upgrading.

Something like suPHP's functionality would't be amiss, either.
