To reduce "jhbuild" complexity, maybe. But not sure if jhbuild will be
more useful than:

* install PackageKit
* install Sweets: wget http://download.sugarlabs.org/sweets/sweets/installer.sh && sh installer.sh
* clone sources (that have sweets.recipe) you need to code: git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/sdk/sugar.git sugar/
* make your changes in sugar/ code
* launch your changes: sweets sugar/:emulator
