The "bloat" of subversion is not required for updates, the "bloat" of
subversion is required once for building binary updates there is a
difference.  And the tools may have warts that I am not aware of, but any
real issues will be addressed in a reasonable time frame.

And even if you have multiple clients there is nothing stopping you from
doing exactly what I said you could do and make an update server, not
a separate computer, for each of them on a small little box you take around
or use ssh tunnels to access back to your server.  See no subversion needed
on your production boxes, in fact no dev tool chain needed on production
boxes and every file installed has a checsum and master copy stored
elsewhere for audit/recovery purposes.
