I think that "single click" design is quite appropriate for kids who 
are not concerned with "what level of Sugar does my system have ?"

I have my own preference -- "Mother, I'll do it myself !!!".  Plus 
the Sugar Client doesn't know about proxies, so mine can't ping ASLO 
for update information.  Plus the Activity updates I fetch get 
installed onto my "permanent" SD card, not through the Journal. 
Plus from hour to hour I might reboot an XO with wildly divergent 
build versions (with completely different Sugar levels).  Put that 
all together, and what I (as someone operating "apart from" formal 
releases) am interested is in is __reading about__ the most 
appropriate update for what my XO is running at this instant.
[For whoever deleted from laptop.org the webpage listing optional 
Activities for build 767 systems -- thanks a lot,  NOT.]
