effectively these are "in-tree" builds of a kind.

Since we recently moved away from in-tree builds, could these also be made
out-of-tree only?


I'm not sure to be really honest with you.

For "developer installs", I think the answer is *no*, it has to be in-tree. Basically you are installing this directory as a living package, as the live copy. It adds some metadata to the folder to do that. No way around it.

I'll investigate, but I have doubts.
