We don't have experience yet, hence the decision not to convert 
overnight to this.
However we might take that path asap, indeed.

The clone_deps is a stopgap mesure.

In principle, depending on the fact you use cubicweb in development or 
deployed mode, these places make sense. What would not is that they are 
used wrongly wrt the mode.

What are your current environment variables wrt what is described there
