I am still not sure the design is entirely right, but the install
command in toymaker just reads a build manifest, which is a file
containing all the files necessary for install. It is explicit, and
list every file to be installed. By design, it cannot install anything
outside this manifest.

That's also how eggs are built (and soon win installers and mac os x pkg).

cheers,

David
