Thank you very much for those suggestions. The variations on <modified> that you suggest
are exactly what I was looking for and should work well - provided I can trust myself not
to accidentally run a deployment build mid-week! :*) On the other hand, the first approach
sounds pretty safe since it just involves comparing the files to the existing archive. Either
way, it sounds as if I'll be able to save my colleagues some build time by issuing content
