That's why I mentioned timestamping the tarball names.  That way you 
keep, say, 10 tarballs around, and only the last one or two would have 
an empty tree.  The main issue I have though is why someone feels it 
necessary to have a script that removes stuff from the website anyway, 
but then I never did look at the website generation scripts.
