Such a patch can go to ‘master’: it won’t trigger any rebuild because,
by definition, the content hash of an ‘origin’ is known in advance
(these are “fixed-output derivations.”)

However, we should audit current uses of ‘hg-fetch’ with recursive
sub-repos because there hashes are most likely wrong already.

Awesome.  FWIW this patch already LGTM.  :-)
