[Buildbot-devel] SourceBaseCommand.sourcedatafile location

So, the sourcedata file was originally stored in the workdir. but this
was changed because various combinations of vcs+mode clobbered unknown
files in the workdir, and also to avoid poluting the build directory, in
case build scripts care about this.

Looking at the master-side steps, it looks like none them store
sourcedata, instead extracting enough data from the repository.
Although it looks like cvs is currently broken in this respect (#2287).

I'm not sure what the proper resolution to this should be.
