I have an update on the issue I was having. If anyone remembers, a couple of days ago I set up Evan Coury's "Hello world" for the e-mail install, since nobody had done an e-mail install with a "working" app at that point. It worked, but I couldn't get it deleted.
It looks like my packaging method for data.tar.gz was the culprit - I was using the GUI in Ubuntu's Nautilus file manager for it, because it was simple and quick, and produced an internal path that looked exactly like the one simplyflipflops had at the time.
It wasn't giving absolute paths with the leading "/".
After seeing that mentioned on the wiki, I tried using the command line - like I had to do for control.tar.gz - so I could get that leading "/". Once I did that, it overwrote the previous version, and I was able to delete it from my pre (which I have never rooted) using the "hold orange and tap" method.
