How do you stop a custom add-on module reinstalling?

We have a couple of modules that are used to set up our implementation test environments (set up companies, charts of accounts, default settings etc). Nice way to quickly get a test database up and running. But the problem is that with a OpenERP update (one openerp_7.0-latest-1_all.deb to the next) the modules are reinitialised and fails with it tries to set the companies again.

How do we stop the custom add-on modules re-installing?

Assuming you are loading the data in an XML file, you would make the opening tag.

Yeap we have that, but there doesn't seem to be the same functionality for our .csv files.
