Supposedly, v3 addresses this.

one thing that would sure be nice to see is a client management
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...
