Going back to your original message, I believe MC is not the tool for
harvesting. WRT MorphicSplitters, using just change sets, and loading the
cs in the update stream would have been much easier.
MC is the tool for managing packages that are external and not too big.
I know we should be offering help or ideas for a different harvesting model,
but I can't offer any of these. I'm sorry.
