Hi Mike,

As you may have noticed, my problem is quite close to yours. I 
have tried to put a list of couples (assuming source,dest was 
ok) into the data_files, which has lead to copying the my files 
(eg. "spam/foo/bar.xsl") into /sw/spam/foo/bar.xsl, creating the 
intermediary subdirectories.

/sw is the parent directory to the bin directory that contains 
the python interpreter. So I guess specifying couples copies the 
file in this location, which is a quite strange "feature" ;)
