My point is that, while each individual step is rather straightforward, 
requiring no new technology, putting together all the pieces to 
accomplish the goal requires a lot of work and testing.  It's a 
build/packaging/release engineering job that touches many aspects of the 
system - basically a mini-distro.  In my experience, creating a coherent 
release containing changes to lots of disparate system components is 
anything but easy.
