adding rm_work as the default is probably the best we can do in a bad
situation with mokomakefile.

I'm starting to think that it might be a good idea to start a new embedded
distribution based on using fully distributed version control systemes
like git or mercurial to check the upstream source code into, then apply
all the openmoko/openembedded patches, check *those* in, and then do a

Checking in patches seems to me to be a workaround for version control
systems that can't handle all the data for an entire source tree, or
provide mechanism for merging upstream sources.
