This sounds like a very good idea to me.  As far as I can see, there's only
one script required, which can be based on Jeremy's one in ports/127242
but extended so that:

   * allow various flags to be passed to sa-update
     - alternative update channels
     - extra GPG keys
     - gpghomedir setting
   * sa-compile can optionally be run if any updates are downloaded

This should be installed as a daily periodic script -- which should be
appropriate for most users: anyone wanting more frequent updates can just
run it stand-alone as a cron job.

Anything else?  Jeremy -- any objections to my stealing your script as the
basis of this?
