	Simplest way is to do a dns lookup to a specific nameserver,
	looking for a TXT resource record, the contents of which
	is the revision number of the current version.  If the
	returned RR does not equal the version of the client the
	current user is running, pop up a window letting them know
	a new version is available, and possibly do an in-line update
	if the user wants.
