I never use "make bootstrap": does that mean it isn't important
either? ;-)

Seriously, though: this depends on your workflows.  AFAIU most people
do "make bootstrap" to solve problems with Lisp macro expansions, and
for that forcing them to regenerate every single file that isn't
versioned is not the best idea.  If you want to start from a pristine
clone, just clone a new worktree.
