Could be that their automated build system needs to update, then modify
some of the files and finally commit them -- and if something goes
wrong, to revert back to a "pristine" WC. Only explanation I can think
of, anyway :)

Possibly not as reliable as a "delete working copy, then
re-checkout/export", but also probably faster.
