No, I did, sorry, I just saw that make dist was running set-serial on
all the files and thought "great".

Obviously there are ways around this problem, so here's a suggestion:
a SET_SERIAL_PATH environment variable to which, if set,
causes files of the form $SET_SERIAL_PATH/`basename $i` to be read
instead of $i. (And of course, $i is written to.)

Any problems with this, or a better way?
