Better yet, surely we could run the damned command if needed...

Silent failures due to operator error increase the friction to people to get involved, 
and propagates the error handling to the mail list rather than handling it locally.

But also see my other post "build products seem to go to the wrong branch"
where it seems *every* time you change branches you need to run ./mvm... 
    ../../../scripts/updateSCCSVersions   #from the build directory
so why not make it part of mvm?
