Actually, perhaps we do.  We currently have some "release tooling"
sitting in tools/build within the main repo.  Time to break that out?

The tool I published on github, although the example is for CloudStack,
was meant to be a thing that different projects can use.  I realize that
it's not much more than what a shell script can do, but I found it
useful to get a clear picture of what steps work vs fail.
