I appreciate your effort and think the script is a nice idea. Still,  
I wonder how often this situation (as described in your OP) actually  
arises: your script seems most helpful whenever an update would bring  
modified engines (macros, etc.) which carry the same name as  
previously and require a thoughtful merging with the existing ~/ 
Since I use TeXShop more for low-intensity LaTeX (for everything I  
prefer Aquamacs) and therefore have few customizations I might not be  
the kind of power user this script is trying to help.  I will  
remember to try your script next time an update is necessary, though,  
and might be more qualified to comment on it afterwards.
