Exactly. Just like the makefiles do for code trees, this script is a simple 
makefile that only updates what needs updating (i.e. what was touched by some 
other script). If you take a look at it, it does not have something like "rm 
-rf <website_dir>", like we have for the current script. So a complete 
cleanup of the website would not be possible with the new script.
