I think we can work with this...
As to the other part, I don't want to go too far down the
path, but there is a mechanism for updating an element
now, through the editor. I know that's not strictly
"runtime", but if I understand, at that point everything's
already parsed so it's not too different.
Anyway, I think there's another way to work the other
thing I was thinking about, I just have to wrap my
brain around the logic... namely, if the phase4x build
locations are mounted on a common path, then the individual
package xml files don't need to know anything about it.
