The majority of the download (for a mock rebuild) will be from within
Core which we don't have any control over (and, it seems, is the reason
for the rebuild anyway.)  Only a few (if any) inter-dependencies within
Extras for any given package.  So, if the Extras packages are going to
be rebuilt (to use the new Core features), then I think there is a
tremendous bandwidth savings to be had in this sort of rebuild vs each
packager using mock.
