Hi Eric,

Given how close you can get now for minimal effort,
this seem unnecessary.


My TravisCI setup this fetches the latest Galaxy as
a tar ball (from a GitHub mirror as it was faster than
a git clone which was faster than getting the tar ball
from BitBucket, which in turn was faster than using
hg clone), and a per-migrated SQLite database
(using a bit of Galaxy functionality originally with
up running the functional tests).

Note this does not cache the eggs and all the other
side effects of the first run like creating config files,
so there is room for some speed up.
