Cleaning up after 10,000 installs?
Will sneaky peak users need to to anything special to clean up installing OmniFocus 5 times a day?

No. Why would we?

I guess that's why I asked the question.....I don't know. When I drag and drop the app to my applications folder - I see a few different things being copied over, not sure where they're going or if they're just package contents that get overwritten every time.

There's basically 4 places OmniFocus puts data:
1) The application itself, usually in your Applications folder (this is really a wrapper with a lot of files in it, that's probably what you're seeing copied over).
2) A preferences file for each user, usually in your Library/Preferences folder.
3) The OmniFocus folder in Library/Application Support contains your actual data, and the web interface if you're running it.
4) There's also a cache of your OmniFocus data to speed some things up, stored in Library/Caches

You're over-writing (1) every time you update, and each of these updates will just re-use (2)-(4) from the previous version.

The only real clutter you're going to build up by installing a new version 5 times a day is the disk images you're downloading. Once you've copied the application to your Applications folder (or wherever you like it to live), you can unmount and delete these.
