I was thinking unionfs kind of temporary layer which keeps physical content
separated. Only write changes to memory file system or so.. session end
will throw everything into bits heaven (/dev/null). :)

Is there such environment variables that can be pointed to writeable
partition? That sources download and compiles on different partition. Then
there is no bandwidth problem since only Makefile kind of files get readed
