- If possible, use rtag instead of tagging a local sandbox.
- Add a 'remove -> check removal -> fail if removal failed' sequence
to your build.
- Also, if possible create a new directory for each build (e.g.
revision or timestamp).  Then create a cleaner that removes outdated
builds (or do the ol' rm -rf/deltree thing manually).
