Some points to keep in mind if you get to try these tools.

I see this is in Ubuntu 9.10, but not 8.04 (the latest LTS). So it may be
for some, but not those who want to run a 5-year cycle on servers, and not
upgrade their Linux every 18 months or so.

Also, the update.php will still have to be run from the web interface. So I
guessing that it takes cares of files only.

Also, the LTS repos have Drupal 5 only, which will get no security releases
once Drupal 7 is out (a couple of months?)
