[OS X TeX] manually updating things installed by iInstaller or not?

I was just browsing on CTAN and noticed in the "news" section that
some things I used, like the Memoir class, had been updated recently.
I downloaded it and compiled it in a folder on my desktop just to see
what was inside. It does appear to be more recent than what I have in
I ran iInstaller again (full TeX package) but memoir did not change.
Is it a good idea to place the new copy I compiled today at the
appropriate locations in
or is it better to wait until iInstaller uses this version?
Alternatively, is it a good idea to install the new version in
~/Library/texmf instead? And if I do this, should I remove the files
in /usr/local/teTeX/ ?
I am not in a particular rush to use the newest version, but answers
to these questions will be handy for other things that get updated on
Thanks in advance,
