I think you guys should take a leaf out of the clamAV product (which you own!) and invent an official update daemon (like freshclam). As with clamAV, use DNS (with short-but-non-zero TTLs) to notify the daemon of version numbers, and the damn daemons can happily check every minute if they wish - it won't trigger downloads until there is something new to download.
