Why so complicated? I recommend
- install new msi
- reboot
if someone wants to risk it, just logoff/logon.

I don't think so. Working with the Subversion trunk is a pain in the
ass. You'll end up rewriting your code at least once a day because
they changed again the API's. No sir, tried that before and will never
do that again. I'll start implementing the UI for locking when the
first RC release is out, not before.
