Are "Smart" Snapins possible (e.g. only install if target application isn't running)?

I’m just starting to use FOG, and am wondering if the snapins handle collisions when the target application is already running?
Lets say I’m trying to install Keepass password manager, but I know that the application is very likely running on the end-user’s PC. Obviously data loss is very bad with some applications, so I don’t want to blindly kill/update the application with a snapin. Instead, I want to update, only if the application isn’t running, or whenever the app closes and it’s safe to install.
Is there a way to make the snapin smart enough to gracefully update the target application, if it’s actively running on the host?

@numericOverflow You should research/test what happens if you run the update while the application is installed or not, running or not. Maybe it’s fine.
@numericOverflow Maybe just use “smart” powershell scripting to do just that. So far this is not implemented in the snapin code and I don’t think we could make this bullet proof anyway.
