In summary:

 - now can use JFFS2 images directly -- thanks to an included script. It can still download and use tarballs, but
that's only if you request it.

- installs RPMs present in an 'rpms' directory in the
customisation dir. So if you have fixed / patched rpms you want to
include, put them there.

- now passes the full path of the internal root to the
customization script, so you no longer need to hardcode /pristine/802

- now adds a custom identifier (pass --buildid) to
olpc_build, and stores logs of the customisation and a copy of the
customisation script in /var/log/olpc_build
