Comment (by westi):

 A few other comments that have come to mind:

  1. Update check should happen often - I have found that every 15 minutes
 works well for the update service I already provide
 (http://blog.ftwr.co.uk/wordpress/wp-version-check/) - the bandwidth used
 is minimal. (Last month the ~1000 unique users of my service used only
 10MB of bandwidth)
  2. Update check should timeout quickly on it's connection to the remote
 server - to alleviate page load problems on downtime of the update
  3. Hooks to perform actions when a new version is detected would be a
 bonus - this could allow plugins to trigger admin emails / auto-upgrades
