I think doing non-Koji or non-Mock (or non-other-build-service) builds
was firmly in this category already.  That is, any direct invocation of
rpmbuild.  Specifying --short-circuit certainly is, it is unlikely to
work if you have an existing build tree populated by a previous
RPM-driven build, too.
