God I hope not.  I spend a long long long time making sure our code 
would work with unpacked archives.  People don't want to jar up a 
deployment during development.  Having the tool jar it up, is a bit 
better than no support at all, but the extra coping is unbearable when 
dealing with a large web app (100 MB).  I actually hope we soon will 
have support unpacked in place deployment, which involves no coping to 
the config store.
