Install Managed Packages via Metadata API


We're having about 800 separate OEM Orgs with our software product installed as a managed package and it's getting more. Installing a package update to all orgs is a terrible pain as it has to be done manually (push updates only allow changes to existing components no new features allowed!). Things would be much easier if we install managed packages and upgrades via Metadata API. This would give us a great way to automate the deployment process for new releases. So please add this functionality.
