Ok, this will be too late for most, unfortuantley I've updated also, but the last wii update fixed a bug in the virtual console region settings, if you haven't updated in last week or so, then hold off if you want to make virtual console purchases.
Apparently if you change your settings to say you live in a different country then go to the wii shop you can choose from games that country has for download. Great if your fav game is already out elsewhere, or especially if your billingual (wish i knew japanese!). Anyway once you've downloaded the games your after, I'd say your probably best updating but thats up to you.
Hope this info maybe useful to some.
Oh and feel free to go listen to my radio on your wii @ http://www.finetune.com/wii
