Comment(by nigel):

 1.  I wasn't keen on adding another mount option. Technically, it isn't
 needed. To get around the unmount inconvenience, I made a few disk images
 that I mount before running the build. ''e.g.'' did the following:
 osx-packager.pl                                         # Creates the
 initial disk image
 mv .osx-packager.dmg MythOSX-SVN.dmg                    # Give it a better
 file name ...
 hdiutil attach MythOSX-SVN.dmg
 diskutil rename /Volumes/MythTvPackagerHDImage MythDev  #
 and mount name
 mkdir /Volumes/MythDev/.osx-packager                    # Move everything
 into it
 mv /Volumes/MythDev/* /Volumes/MythDev/.osx-packager
 mv osx-packager.pl /Volumes/MythDev
 That way, there is one file that I can double-click and cd into that
 contains everything (even final .apps).

 2.  The "have to create a case-sensitive volume to get around badly-named
 files" problem is probably not even the case at the moment?

 But, to close this ticket, I will add the options anyway.
