These 2 modifications will break pristine updates because you do them
after regenerating the contents file.

Also, updates will be made a bit bigger than usual with this script as
the OLPC_EPOCH considerations from pilgrim/fedora-xo are not being
applied. And there are probably some other considerations that need to
be applied that are not immediately springing to mind.

I think we need to add some warning notices about the use of this
functionality. At least personally I'm uncomfortable about using any of
it (beyond the activities/content customization) in any future scenario
because of things like this.
