It seems like it might be better for us all to focus on contributing to
Integrate Automatic Upgrade

Link to discussion from last:
[wp-hackers] SVN: /branches/stable/

The main points against seemed to be:

Ryan & Peter:
"svn copying to the same branch over-and-over doesn't work that well
because moves and deletes are not accounted for.  We might be able to
svn merge but that can get messy."

At the end of the day, you probably don't want fully automatic
upgrading as you don't know if the "stable" release of 2.1 (or 2.0) is
going to break something you have.

 My best guess would be a well-scripted way to SVN SWITCH several
installs would be the safest.

Hope that helps,
