That could be helped by using shallow clones, though. You only ever
need a full clone if you wish to examine old history, and you could
keep just one full clone for that purpose, while having many shallow
clones for hacking.

Local full clones start out as hardlinks to the original repository.
They will diverge over time, but initially they are quite cheap.

But they require some more setting up, as you need to adjust the remote tracking behaviour of the new clones. For those who know how, that is indeed a better solution.
