Software Updater in 13.04

Registered by Michael Terry on 2012-10-02

Rationale:
Software Updater went through some design changes last cycle, following a spec by mpt. But not everything got done. Let's finish that spec this next cycle.

Goals:
Implement mpt's spec and keep Software Updater current with the platform.
