Oh, okay, thanks. I've gotten burned in the past when trying to push a
lot of binary data around in git repos, because AFAIK git still can't
resume like rsync. I guess the deltas will be small enough that this
shouldn't be a problem. I'll see about making the code spam someone if
the git operations have a hiccup.

I'll set up a machine as a buildbot so that I can test my changes.
Anything I should know that's not in the README or the Tinderbox pages
on the wiki?
