Best practice: Reimport updated store assets

    When you bought an asset package from the Asset Store and you made some modifications to scripts, animations, etc., how do you handle it when the developer of the asset has an update? Simply reimporting the asset package would overwrite all the changes you made, yet not updating, clearly leaves you exposed to potential bugs in the original assets and you potentially miss out on new features.

    Is there some kind of a best practice way to handle these situations? It's something every developer is affected by, I would think, so I would assume there is some kind of a mechanic in place to deal with it?

    Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions.
