You don't need to link/unlink, or planet create.  Just planet link
once, and use setup-plt -P <name> <package.plt> <major> <minor> to
rebuild each time you update your code.  Give it -D as well to disable
scribble rebuilding and reindexing.  Then planet create when you are
ready to distribute, and upload the file to Planet.  You should
probably unlink and fileinject to test the file before releasing, but
you don't need to unlink, relink, or create from scratch while
