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.
