Just out of curiosity, why is that not allowed?  I can see a certain
virtue in consistency of action, but at the same time, there are
things to be said for reducing tedious activities.  (Thus, I suppose,
the reason for tools that download the SBo information, figure out
what needs to be downloaded, downloading it if it is not already
downloaded, and then doing the build.)
