OK, just to make this clean: in syntax version 3.2, <unpack> is always 
going to unpack into the specified "base", whether that was specified on 
the <unpack> element or an enclosing <stage>. The download can still be 
done to a different location (by using an absolute path for <archive>) 
or to a subdirectory of the "base" (by using a relative path for 
<archive>). I'm OK with this, it will work fine in my profiles, I just 
wanted to document the new behavior so when James starts updating the 
syntax doc he'll know what to put in there :-)
