Perhaps setup should offer to reboot for you, instead of popping up a
dialog saying "in-use files were replaced"...  Then the act of not
rebooting will require clicking "No, I'll reboot later", or something.  As
much as I hate this feature of Windows installers, it is, perhaps, the
right approach in this situation.

Setup could also prompt the user to stop the processes before replacing
in-use files, instead of scheduling their replacement on-reboot.  I've
been meaning to look into it for a while -- perhaps one of those days I'll
get a tuit (round or otherwise).
