	I don't actually know -- the APIs take a File, and they don't barf 
if that File happens to be a directory, so...  I just let the server-side 
Deployer component manage it.  I thought it would copy the contents into 
the config-store one way or the other, but I haven't looked too closely.

	It will be cool once the servlet JSR-88 implementation is 
available.  I think we can just create a JarOutputStream and stream a JAR 
to the server without ever building it on disk.  No doubt it will still 
take a while for a 100MB archive, but that'll just be an excuse to figure 
out the command-line manipulations like Maven does to show you the 
progress.  :)
