Adding Web Forms / WCM Templates from an AMP

Hello all,

I'm in the process of developing some customizations to the Web Client to support customized workflows and content types for WCM for my company.

I'm trying to keep the need for manual steps in installation to a minimum.  Continuing on this train of thought, is there any way to use an AMP to install Web Forms automatically, and after installation create a Template WCM Project that uses those Web Forms and a Custom Workflow that also has been loaded?

If possible, I'd like to be able to package the XSD files for the Web Forms and maybe a simple bootstrap object for the other needed parameters, so this could be easily be wrapped into an Ant script. 

I've seen some suggestions to import the Web Forms to a store, and then export the forms as an ACP file and re-import them when installing the AMP.  This becomes a bit tedious as every change to a Web Form requires rebuilding the Forms in some environment prior to repackaging them in the AMP.

Does anyone have any ideas, or has anyone done anything similar?
