[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,
