 Replying to [comment:11 mikeperry]:
 > I think whichever mechanism we use should be the same on all three
 platforms. I have a quick question about approach 2: would we be copying
 the old libraries into the update directory, or the new ones from the
 included mar?
 > I'm assuming old because the updater hasn't run at this point, and if
 this is true, it seems to me that option 1 is the winner (simply adding
 the libraries to the search path is better than trying to maintain a list
 and copy them, since its the same code either way).

 Correct, we would be copying old libraries.  If we can avoid copying them,
 it seems like a win.
