In long running perspective bazaar.sl.o is successor of jhbuid (in one
of bazaar use cases). In my mind people use jhbuild to:

 * test/use recent sugar
 * build dependencies of recent sugar that are not yet packaged
 * develop component they are building (glucose, to run fructose there
   is no need in jhbuild, just code activities in ~/Activities)

The first two point will be solved after setting up bazaar.sl.o (this +
next weeks). The 3rd point is a task for net stages of 0sugar
implementation, i.e., convenient running of the code you are developing
right now is important thing for sugar(imho). For example activities
could be used right now, from its development environment
(~/Activities). 0sugar will follow this scheme for all 0sugar package,
not only for activities.
