It's only a pain because Fedora's infrastructure wasn't designed for
it; instead it implements the world's least optimized and most painful
revision control system of series-of-tarballs.  If the infrastructure
supported it directly, that would change the pain equation quite a

There is the detail that then you'd have to know how to run
autogen.sh, but jhbuild already has that knowledge for a lot of the
desktop core stack.

Anyways this kind of thing can be incremental; just because
infrastructure now supports pulling from git doesn't mean we'd need to
have a field day editing .spec files to get everything to use it.
