Yes, that was my reasoning. Also, the file is not really tied to hotspot
per se -- if you were to plug in another VM, you'd still need this file.
Combined with the fact that this was the file that was exported to the
world. (Which doesn't *really* make any difference in this case, since
the files were identical...)
