Hold off on that work. Once I'm finished with this new backend, I'm 
going to be taking the system update GUI out of the system manager and 
turning it into its own program. When its finished, it'll be able to 
perform 4 types of updates:

* freebsd-update for both kernel / world
* stand-alone updates, for PC-BSD tools and such, control panel, life 
preserver, etc.
* pkg updates to system packages, I.E. nvidia / adobe flash, etc
* Full-system updates, I.E. from 9.0 -> 9.1 -> 9.2, etc
