Is --disable-bootstrap hooked up for people that want to disable this? It doesn't seem to be from looking at the code, but I'm not familiar with it.

Yes, you can --disable-bootstrap. I'm not sure why you would want that except when there is a problem, though.

Two reasons:

  1. I used to do eager bootstrap anytime I pulled from central for a new build, I ran into a lot of blocking bugs this way, so I now I only do it when my build breaks.
  2. I have several active working directories, if I do a new pull/build in one dir I don't want that to break the existing build in another dir.
