Code to be hot-updated (while running) must have update capability
builtin. But please consider security. If a remote system can log in
and *push* code, an attacker can potentially do the same. Notice that
self-updating programs and systems generally log out to a hardwired
location, ask if there are updates, and *pull* the new code.
