tgz.old, not .bak   :-)

And I considered that.  Tried to weigh the waste of disk space vs. 
retaining the .old file as means of "easily" determining when (and even 
what components) of the base-chroot was modified.

Of course, it was easier to not remove it, since doing so would have 
required me to google the syntax for removing a file with python.  
os.unlink().  Good; I learned something else today.

And what is that Larry Wall saying about lazy programmers ?
