Live has to expand to the date when the sources were fetched, otherwise
its not 'live' by definition.
As an illustration, I install KDE 4.2 on my 25MHz 486DX with 64Mb RAM.
During the time it takes to build, 'live' is likely to have changed
How do you handle prefetching of sources, or do you forbid
Live infers you fetch the sources at the time you need to build them
and do the live expansion at that time. Without that you don't know how
old your live version is.
live can change several times a day. With only one day resolution, how
do you handle that?
