 From the perspective of multi-site drupal installs, I think we  
should seriously look at making
install.php and update.php shell runable.

After updating the source, being able to do :
for i in `ls -1 sites/*`;
     php update.php --site $i --upgrade;

To upgrade the schema of all your sites, versus having to go and  
update every one
by hand, is an important distinction.

Additionally, install.php can be built to accept the form fields from  
the command line
install.php --site www.domain.com --db_type='mysql' -- 
db_name='something' --db_username='root' --prefix='prefix_'
