It's been a year or so since I've used the buildApplet (since I've 
switched to machopython?) and even back then when I used it a lot 
to "compile" CGIs I never used the update feature. In fact I'd 
confess that I did not even know it exists :-). If I knew it 
existed I would have used it quite a lot. But since I manage to do 
without you can get rid of it AFAIC.
