This depends greatly on your scenario. Personally, I think that anyone who
puts FS into production (i.e. in a place where it helps one make money)
should *ALWAYS* have a backup/sandbox/test system for handling updates. If
you are in a mission-critical scenario then it probably means that once you
get it working you don't touch it unless you absolutely have to. That's
where your test system comes in to play. Ideally you have the exact same
hardware on your test system that you do in production. Then your test
system can double as a warm standby.

Just my $.02, but I think that commodity hardware being so cheap these days
that there's no excuse for a for-profit venture using FS (or any other
software, for that matter) not to have a test system for mission-critical
