I have two suggestion:
1) extend UAB with BitTorrent protocol - on server there will be only metainfo file and original release file - new implementation of IDownloader (
2) new version of apps will be released as XDelta diff files - new implementation of IActivationProcessor (

By using application which uses UAB user will be seeding diff files.
What you think about it?

Best regards

Option 2 can be realized by Windows Installer patch technology... but BitTorrent is realy feature nice to have :)
