[Sugar-devel] jhbuild improvement?

I was reading in the Gnome 3.2 release notes:

GNOME's build tool JHBuild does not build a module anymore if the
version installed on your system is recent enough. This is controlled by
the configuration option partial_build and it is enabled by default. The
command jhbuild sysdeps lists which system modules have been found as
well as the modules that are going to be build.

If you start to build GNOME from scratch with a recent distribution,
this can easily drop 50 modules from the list of modules to compile.

This feature could potentially reduce the complexity for setting up a
new development environment. What do you think?
