Certainly possible, though I have some thoughts regarding the details
(e.g. the user shouldn't ever type any password into a random program).
Please file a feature request upstream (i.e. at Gnome).

Actually you only need to run it two times, as the "update" part is

I agree it's a bit buried, improvements are welcome.
Regarding doing a default macro consisting of depscheck + build, it's a
good idea. Please file a bug at dev.sugarlabs.org against sugar-jhbuild
so I don't forget about it. Patches are welcome, of course (take a look
at sjhbuild/main.py). :)
