    Linked Smart Objects and updating across multiple files


      The new Linked Smart Objects feature would be incredibly helpful to me, barring one potential issue.  I have hundreds of PSDs that share similar web site elements (navigation, footer, etc).  I want to begin utilizing this feature to link these elements across all PSDs.  So if I make a change to one of the linked documents, it is not practical for me to open every PSD and manually update the linked objects (even with using the "update all" feature which only updates the open document).  What I need is a utility that batch updates ALL PSDs that link to this file.  Otherwise this feature is useless, as I am always passing files back and forth between our dev team and there is no way I can open every affected file when I make an update to a shared object.  Is this possible?
