Update Themes or Plugins through the Installer

People are so used to the update notice with 1-click updating for themes and plugins if they get them from .org or a third party site which has that capability (not all do).

But one feature that would be great to have is the ability to utilize the theme/plugin installers to allow updating simply by re-installing a fresh downloaded zip for a theme or plugin. WP doesn’t do that but Joomla does and it’s so useful and efficient.
