Auto updating to Write Restricted Folders

Folks:
I'm also very interested in this. Normally, adding software to the Applications folder requires an administrator password. A dialog box would come up, but I'm curious how others handle this and if a download to the Applications folder is attempted, whether a dialog asking for an administrative password will come up.
Best,
Bill
