Right now we don't have any automated scripts out which add PBIs to the
index for you. We manually test PBIs, then use a custom php script which
does the index add / remove, and uploads the resulting pbi-meta-9.bz2
file to the server.

The workflow is like this:

Make sure the generic "meta" entry exists for a PBI
If not, add one with "pbi_metatool add"
Use "pbi_indextool add" to list the PBI in the index
If we have more than say 3 PBIs already in the index, we use
"pbi_indextool rem" on the oldest.
Upload new index / meta files to web

This could be automated with some shell-scripts, if you use the "-h"
flag to pbi_autobuild to run a helper-script, its possible to
setup that script to do those steps for you automatically.
