Does that makes sense? Did I forget a 'name' somewhere?
When you use things like
   src = ./.;
the directory gets copied into nix store and the resulting path's name
is based on the name of the directory.
I see. That was rather unobvious and unexpected to me.

Anyone knows a (creative) way around that? I would like to have it build code
from ./., but where the name of the directory you happened to have checked the
project out in doesn't matter (because then the binary cache works).
Well, you could try to play with symlinks. A self-symlinks seems to be enough.

git checkout ... somewhere
cd somewhere
ln -s . knownName


src = builtins.filterSource (path: type: path != "./knownName") ./knownName; # 
syntax my not be correct here, check by yourself :-).
