Please, please, **PLEASE** add automated voodoo to this particular
feature, because its whole point is to save the users work, and if you
only give them a heap of tinker toys, you aren't saving them anything.

Please, please, please, ***PLEASE!!!*** add intelligent "do the right
thing" logic to this feature, because the last thing in the WORLD the
enterprise customer wants is a tool that makes the user figure that all
out, and risks destroying a central build, ruining a distribution
package, or even breaking a thousand customer sites, due to some
miscalculation.

And, yes, ppp accept the responsibility for making it *good* voodoo and
the RIGHT right thing.
