Sure. If you've got a solution, I have no objections. I just didn't
think it was a big deal, either way.
And, ur, I've been one of those screwed up package maintainers. I don't
even currently rebuild dir in any of my packages and I really should.
Or, actually, I think either setup.exe should be intelligent enough to
do this for you or there should be some way for a package to say "please
run this standard bit of machinery for me".
