one thing that would sure be nice to see is a client management 
addition.
For those of us running more than 2 or 3 clients, the ability to 
automate the new client installation would be really nice.
i.e. the proxy signals a upgrade, the client sends in its CPU 
type/client make and if it is authorized to upgrade, then the personal 
proxy goes and gets the needed versions from a proxy, and they are 
distributed with no intervention.
     
Just a thought...
