I've been thinking about this too; it's more inconvenient than I
expected. Some other issues:

 * Hard to clean the build directory ('rm -rf
~/.cache/jhbuild/build/epiphany' replaces a simple 'git clean -xfd')

 * Hard to upload tarballs ('scp

But I think this is actually mostly just a problem because we put the
build directory in a shitty place. If we put it under the source
directory, it wouldn't be such a problem easier.

I've been thinking about the exact same thing recently; how about a 'jhbuild jump' command that will take you from a location under srcdir to the corresponding location under builddir and vice versa? And perhaps have some environment variables defined as well.
