Comment(by marcusl):

 IIUC, this is similar to some discussion we had on Mercurial, where we
 decided to keep the full repo on disk between update, but for clobber
 mode, just retrieve the specified. For git, cloning shallow in clobber
 mode makes sense, in update, not as much.

 (I also think that it'd be cool to write something that would allow a
 buildslave to cache DVCS:es locally, outside the build.dir, then do hard-
 link clone into the buld dir. That would reduce bandwidth usage between
 slave and repo servers, but still have access to the full history
