Dear Technical Support!

(By the way, did you know that this mailing list welcomes real names?)

You should have core installation in another place and only symlink it 
to actual installations. This way upgrade is the most simple:
- unpack new version
- replace one (!) symlink

All done.

This is how it looks like on our server:

/path1/typo3_src -> /path1/typo3-4.1.0_src/

/webpath/web1/typo3 -> /path1/typo3_src/typo3
/webpath/web1/t3lib -> /path1/typo3_src/t3lib
/webpath/web2/typo3 -> /path1/typo3_src/typo3
/webpath/web2/t3lib -> /path1/typo3_src/t3lib

So I just change typo3_src symlink to new core and all sites are updated.
