I have used a technique that is fairly simple, and works pretty well
for me.

create an empty library. I'll call it NEW1

1. when you have a program to install, compile the objects into NEW1.
2. change the system library list to place NEW1 in the system portion
of everyone's library list.
3. send a message to all active users to sign off and sign back on
within the hour (or 10 minutes, or whatever).
4. after that time period, everyone should be out of the offending
program and using the new one.
5. compile the objects again into the production library and remove
NEW1 from the system library list.
6. Delete objects from NEW1 before repeating procedure.
