Would it make sense to be able to generate the smaller 'sets' from
a full build.
So that, for those sets, extra files wouldn't matter.

I do prefer having something that is a definition of what a release
contains - rather than being what happens to be in a chunk of
filestore at the time the release is done.

It can also be useful (at least in some environments) to rename
(or change the directory of) files at that point.
