The proposed procedure is like:

(1) check todays tar (on local distfiles/git-package)
(2) check old tar    (the same as above)
(3a) if tar found, open tar
     and then 'git checkout -f master'
(3b) if tar not found, 'git clone'
(4) if cloned recently or tar file was the same date .. do not write
   else tar up (on local distfiles/git-package) for next time

  By this way without deleting distfiles/git-package/emacs*
stuff, 'git clone' won't be executed at all, and .git may get
fat (very slowly), I think.

 check at the stage (4) is little bit rough, it would be better
if git checkout -f master get some update or not. But above
method works OK anyhow I believe.
