We would clear this at the start of each build, and then build up the installed compiler + libraries + package manager as each project completed its build (basically just using the same install logic into a side location).

My concern is that copying files around will significantly increase
the build time for everyone because of I/O.  Debug builds of Swift are
quite large (> 700 Mb IIRC).
