Well it looks like one can do this without too much pain; always nice.

Once you have a config map saved in the repository it is possible to find the version number with sometihng like
	|  myRepo |
	myRepo := MCHttpRepository
		user: 'freddy'
		password: 'kreuger'.
	^(myRepo  highestNumberedVersionNameForPackageNamed: configNameString) versionNumber

Keep track of the highest known value and compare to decide on whether to build.

This way you get a build if the map is updated, which actually solves the potential problem of several packages needing to be saved in a group.
