I think that this change just made a mess of the SqS/VMMaker repository.
Fortunately I have admin rights to that repository, so I have been able
to clean it up with (hopefully) no lasting problems.

The VMMaker package uses various externally maintained plugins and
packages (e.g. pool definitions in FFI and Speech). The update map
for VMMaker refers to these packages, and 'VMMaker updateFromServer'
relies on that update map. I do *not* want copies of all of these
external packages to be dumped into the VMMaker project without
my knowledge or permission.

If this change was the cause of the problem I described, then I
think it should be reverted.
