I don't know if this is exactly what you mean, but I'm working on a
perl-based+exec front end 'cygupdate' program.  It requires an existing
installation with such things as perl and cp involved, though.

I've been using it for all of my updates for a while with no problem but
it is not quite polished enoug for wide distribution yet.  There are
still some problems with replacing running binaries, like for instance,
the cygupdate.exe itself.
