Exactly, that's the point. Does he do it like this always, and what if he
forgets it once? That is, if in one of his poke checkouts he runs

   ./autopull.sh --jitter-srcdir="$HOME/gnu/jitter-experimental"

Will he get a mix of derived files from $HOME/gnu/jitter-experimental
and ./jitter (with likely breakage)?

Or is the directory name $HOME/gnu/jitter-experimental being remembered
somewhere, making it unnecessary to repeat it?
