Binary package hint: adept

What is this "gearwheel" sort of updater Icon trying to tell us? Is
there any metaphor linked with it, I mean - what does a gearwheel have
to do with an update notifier?

Although the old icon in KDE 3 (this red warning sign) was not perfect
(it is too alarming in case of non-critical security updates), it did at
least catch most user's attention, telling them that something was not
okay with their systems. If there is no better proposal for a new Icon,
I would be pleased to see at least the old icon back in Ubuntu 9.10.
