I liked your post. It's easy for us to spend too much time arguing
about what "real users" have to do and what our real constraints are.

Since your company needs to make the effort to keep things up to date
and certify the latest version for your environment anyway, consider
becoming a boost tester. It's a mostly automatic process which does
most or all of what you're doing and it would be very helpful for the
rest of us.
