Description

"Theoretically", this would make no difference. But it would really speed things up for huge hg repos, the startdir->srcdir clone takes way longer the way libremakepkg does it now. (for iceweasel it's on the scale of 15 minutes vs 90 minutes)

So, since in order for the sterility of the whole thing to be ensured, it would have to rm -rf the existing startdir anyway. So that doesn't actually give us the hg speedup.

But right now we extract it to $TMPDIR, which could be on any filesystem. I'm not sure that's the right call.

iceweasel clones from git again now but this may still be a good idea per the recent discussion in #2403
