I see your point about the hard baked-ness of these filenames, but I  
think this is probably not a huge priority for us right now. In our  
quest to get Builder to release, we've got bigger fish to fry.

In the meantime, our Builder PHP code should load the fluid_version  
property out of and build up the source and minified  
file names using the same procedure as the Ant build. That way we  
won't have bother with asking deployers to update the SRC_FILE_NAME  
and MIN_FILE_NAME in config.php.

Down the road, we can consider whether or not we even need to make any  
assumptions in the Builder about the file names of our Infusion  
builds. My guess is that with a bit of refactoring, we probably won't  
have to know the file name at all.
