I noticed this issue when checking on some recent 2.7 branch failures on my buildbot.  It might be worth noting this change to any Windows buildbot owners since we all have existing trees now with a lot of stranded external folders that can be removed.

For what it's worth - and it's a minor concern - in a buildbot context, I prefer the old way.  I am much more likely to have to manipulate the build folder (the hg checkout/build folder on a buildbot) to deal with issues than any of the external folders, so it's always been very convenient to be able to do so easily without affecting those externals (for which causing a rebuild is very time consuming)
