I find this all very confusing - we have a number of CUSTOM_* variables
now and I would expect they to be closely tied together. Also unclear if
TOPDIR is really the top-dir or the top of the "open" repo? If really
the top then aren't TOPDIR and CUSTOM_ROOT the same ?? Or are we
allowing the custom and regular parts to exist isolated in the filesystem ??
