I'd say both are extremely important.  Basically, you'll want the
to change as much of the world as possible, including players, mobs,
doors, rooms and scripts if you have them.

Other things like automating the process where you copy over a new world
DB image, or a new server binary also help keep the downtime to a
if indeed that causes downtime at all (It does on Scry...).
