Anyone Noticed The 'Microsoft Windows Component Publisher'??

...that is now required at the Windows Update site? I haven't heard anything bad about it so far but on the last five computers I've manually updated, (A couple early Friday A.M. and the other three today), (W2000 and XP), I've been required to install what appears to be the latest ActiveX control for Windows Update from Microsoft.. As listed above, it's titled "Microsoft Windows Component Publisher".
It didn't show up at the "Patch Tuesday" updates in August but I've only seen it in the last few days. I'm not finding much about it on the net and I'm just curious as to it's purpose other than it's clearly an update to the Windows Update software.
Hope this helps.
