Adobe Reader X is a Software Distribution patch.
Create a new scan template; remove Security patches and selection the option for Software Distribution.
(warning- DO NOT select autodeployment)
scan the machine using the Software Distribution scan template.
Right click the missing Adobe Reader X patch and deploy the selected patch.
You can then scan the machine using a Security scan template to see if any patches are available.
You could create a new deployment template that will push the patch to the machine and run it after the Adobe Reader X app was installed.

I understand the first method, but I was trying to avoid doing two scans and two deploys.
However, I realized now that a full install of 10.1 is available as well as the update patch, so I don't really need to worry about it.
Just for future reference, though, if the full install wasn't available, it looks like the steps for using your second metod would be:
1. Copy my normal deployment template
2. Add a "Push File" custom action that pushes the 10.1 patch
3. Add a "After all patches" custom action that executes the patch
4. Do a software distribution scan
5. Deploy just Reader 10 using my new deployment template.
Is that correct? It doesn't seem that complicated, I'm not sure why I couldn't make sense of it yesterday.
