Hm - maybe I did not make myself clear [?]. Ideally I would have
something like this (I am exaggerating):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(cons (channel
       (name 'my-stuff)
       (url "git://")


      ;; tata !!
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I.e. while developing (and pulling from my own channel frequently):
don't spend 53s each time, and then - once in a while - pull from both channels.
