ap-* are to do with the pushing machinery, so I'm not sure this is the
right place for it.

I think it would be OK to hardcode the URL into the script and put the
version number in the config file (e.g. production-config). Perhaps with
a default (in the script).

The usual approach would be to have a setup script (as you have done
here) to populate an output directory rather than to run the dl on every
run (as you propose in this comment, I think).

All ones for Ian J though really.
