1.  I don't have a solution in the case that you experience order problems.

2.  If things seem OK, you could write a carefully crafter doit to determine which are missing, then use FTP in the fileList to bring in the ones you need.

3.  In general, you could use, eg, fetch to import all the files and file them in with another carefully crafter doit.

Methinks it's getting to be time for a new release which, thanks to the updates will merely consist of condensing changes and advancing the version of an up-to-date image and storing it somewhere.  I'll try to do this within the week.
