Wow, yes, that is quite a difference !

I wonder if Travis' arbitrary sub-dir caching feature would help us to
the same extent, while avoiding need to manually maintain the preseed.


It just caches entire content of a given subdir between runs. First time
it would be slow, but presumably fast thereafter, and any time the submodule
gets new updates, those would get cached too
