It's also worth pointing out a related side effect of that choice...

Uploads of branch tarballs are not stable and they're also not
atomic. If your job tries to retrieve that tarball at the same time
that it's being updated from a post-merge branch-tarball job, you
will end up with a truncated file and your job will fail. The larger
and more complex the tarball (for example nova's), the greater
chance you have to catch it at just the wrong moment.
