Very true.

Sounds good to me too.

 From my other emails, you can see I was trying to generate 
distributions using Maven. Robert pointed out some md5 and signature 
stuff. I'll punt on that for a little while. I'm mostly interested in 
getting the packaging process as automated as possible so the release 
process is more "code oriented" and less of a packaging project.
