Well, the Right Thing would be to check the image+changes files into
the datastore. Problem is, it is unusably inefficient to do so
currently because a Journal entry can only hold one file at a time.
That means those two files would have to be pt into an archive and
copied into/out of the datastore. Development images can easily grow
to 50 or 100 MB, so this is not really an option. Even copying 20 MB
takes a while.
