I thought that the dilemma for the vote was regarding the simplication 
of the deployment tool for code sake rather than for the user sake (i.e. 
one tool was difficult to code whereas two tools was difficult for the 
user). I see now that there is a need for two tools, each of which 
serves a very specific purpose. I now think that much of the dilemma 
surrounds the term 'deploy'.

I cast my vote in favor of a single tool simply from a user's point of 
view, all the while thinking that the strategy pattern would easily sort 
out the coding dilemma.
