I think the functionality is great, but I'd prefer to see it integrated
on top of the packaging work started by Lionel rather than coded as
proposed in the current patch. I am also not sure that rebuilding the
$(TARGET_DIR) without rebuilding the $(STAGING_DIR) is a good thing.

However, it's true that the packaging work started by Lionel is not
ready for inclusion yet, so maybe we should merge this as is, and then
update it once we have the proper packaging mechanism working.
