I'm not really clear on this from the apps team notes, but my 
understanding is:

- the functional tests that cover feeds are not currently breaking
- the functional tests could break easily if we tweak feeds and don't 
get the tarballs updated
- if the functional tests did break easily or frequently, that would 
cause extra work for the apps team

I'd rather see us revert Phillip's change than disable the functional 
test -- I'd hate to see regressions pile up in sample parcels. We're 
going to be blocked on porting parcels anyway until we get the build change.

Cheers,
Katie
