Okay, if you're going to be doing shallow clones, you may as well just
get the dang tarballs. This is totally flying in the face of what the
-git packages really are, development packages. Once you download it,
you never have to again, just update it. If you've got a problem with
the size, then somehow get a physical copy of it, or just take the time
to get a revision, then keep it updated gradually.
