I'd suggest, if we implement this, that automatic (security) updates are
*ALWAYS* delayed until something like 24h-36h after the release.  That
gives us the time to block updates that contain serious bugs (like
breaking X or such).

24h after the release of a security patch in Ubuntu is on average still
at least 14 days before the release of a similar patch in Windows...  ;)
