Certainly they won't. ;-)

If your need is to do enterprisey/governmenty stuff like:

  * Change management: detect modifications made to plugins/themes (and
    auto-patch new versions)
  * Backups: keep historical copies of any plugins/themes that are updated
  * Restore: be able to roll back to historical versions
  * Logging: keep a log of backup/restore/etc. operations performed
  * Mass-management: be able to see at a glance what's installed + what
    needs updating, and operate on all your sites at once
  * Scriptable: be able to do all this stuff from the CLI, and script
    and automate it

Then, that's part of the need I had to scratch that led to WordShell 
(http://wordshell.net). It also does database search-and-replace and a 
ton of other things.

It's free in the GPL sense, but not the economic sense... I'm hoping to 
get a free-in-economic-sense version out at some point this year and 
will let this list know when I do. Some more big agencies buying the 
existing site licence would certainly help me have some more time to 
advance plans for that.
