I would also like to know:

1. How does that non-versioned complete integrated tree work as regards
to updates/pulls?

2. What does it mean for testing? Specifically, complete incremental

3. Or is there no way to get a complete with source integrated tree? I'm
worried as not having an easy way to get that would make testing rather

Note, I dont' consider "use ryppl", or "use cmake", as an acceptable
answer ;-) As being locked into any particular tool is something I'm
vehemently against.

Worried-ly, yours.
