Handle changed Elevated Trust installations better

It seems in SL4 that if you are running a NON-elevated trust program and then decide to enable Elevated Trust you isolate all your existing OOB installs out there as the update mechanism will not download it.

(See for full issue - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3726647/silverlight-4-oob-app-with-elevated-trust-and-signed-cert-does-not-update-need-t)

I think a simple solution is the same "This program requires Elevate Trust" installation message when you try to update an existing non-elevated trust program with a new version that now requires it.

Instead, I have to basically loose all my OOB users and ask them to uninstall and reinstall the new version, just because I decided to elevate it. You don't always know that you will need Elevated Trust when you start development and you'll just lose users/orphan OOB installs with the current method.
