addtask deploy before do_build after do_compile

is actually correct as far as dependencies go but interacts badly with

This raises a long standing issue. do_rm_work should run as the last
task, just before do_build. Currently we have difficulty in inserting
that task into the task structure since the do_deploy isn't always
defined. The planned solution is to allow syntax like:

addtask rm_work after do_package do_deploy

and then lots of these tricky ordering issues can be solved in an easier
way. I've not remembered about this at the right time to implement it so
far though...
