The "Mark as deployable" feature was intended to be used originally just to deploy an xml file or static file directly with no change. After a while, users said they wanted the freedom to mark a folder as deployable too. The folder or file (resource) is not intended to be modified or manipulated at all by the deployment process, with absolutely no brains to it at all. 

To do something slightly smarter, you'd probably want to open up the "Project Archives" view and make what amounts to a zip-configuration for the project, to declare how to properly zip it up. Project archives will then make sure after every change to a file that is represented by your zip-config's filesets, the output jar is updated. Then you can simply mark that output jar as "deployable" and have that deployed to the server.

Any improvements you can think of to the workflow are much appreciated, but the "mark as deployable" is meant to be as dumb as rocks for the specific use case of a project already in the proper layout to simply be copied over to the server.
