To clarify the reason for this: of course everybody can also create
their own clone cpython using the "server-side clone" feature at
http://hg.python.org/cpython/.  However, this repo has the same
consistency-checking hooks enabled as the /cpython repository, whereas
custom clones start out with no hooks.
