Background software updates

Having Zero Install check for updates once a month or so is handy, as it keeps you up-to-date, but it's pretty annoying that you have to wait for the check just when you're trying to start a program. Especially if there aren't any updates available anyway! I've just committed some new code to do the checking in the background, using the D-BUS notification daemon to let you know if there are updates. This screenshot shows what happens when I run Inkscape:

Interesting Python speedup idea seen on

Unfortunately using it I found 2 things:
1) all existing python scripts that do /usr/bin/python or /usr/bin/env python have to be modified (?)
2) currently it seems broken for any python app that does local imports, meaning it can't find 'findrox'!!

I may try to fix these and report later...but I wonder if this concept could be added to the Panel somehow.
