(Different Jon here)
I would be unhappy with proposals that force me to clone everything,
since I typically have many copies of the langtools repo in flight, in
various stages of development. It would be excessive if all of these
were full forests. I've tried using "mq" and it doesn't work well for
me -- in particular, it's a pain to switch between patches and have to
rebuild all the corresponding binaries every time you switch.
