This is rather exciting. Do you think that this method can be adapted to
build the pluggable transports bundles? This is currently done
semi-manually, with a makefile that builds the pluggable transports,
unzips the bundle, copies in some files, and re-zips the bundle.


We also have instructions for setting up a build VM from scratch--which
it sounds like is what Vagrant does--but I guess we would instead use
whatever is the build machine for the vanilla bundle.


It would solve a lot of problems for us to have the PT bundles built at
the same place and time as the vanilla bundles.
