We have automated the entire process and don't have any user  
interaction for upgrades.

We have multiple versions running at the same time, and updating a  
site means
changing it's virtual host config to point to the right version,  
doing apachectl graceful
and running install.php, which does all the updates it can find.

a lot of this is scripted, and has no place in drupal itself.
