I'm not too sure of the utility of clone repos. TBH, I would rather push 
towards keeping everything as a branch in the main repo. Mostly, I want 
discoverability of branches of work - whether that is by automatically getting 
them when you do "git fetch", or by a github-like "clones of this repo" thing 
on the web interface.

On the scratch and anongit side, my main concern is (like Jan said) speed of 
syncing new things. I'd like to be able to know that people can clone 
something and view it in the online repo browser pretty much as soon as I 
create it.
