I see.
So, the way I understand it now, the tool should be able to
* Make all paths relative
* Copy all files which are not within the project root's subtree into
the project subtree OR
* Copy all relevant files (i.e. no .png previews etc.) into a
completely new, clean directory
* Perhaps even instantly zip all files to make sharing easier
* Do some other totally awesome stuff I can't even think of
