today's surprise: builtins fetchTarball uses the `tar` and `gzip` on your current PATH
Yeah.. and fetchGit uses the git on path

My understanding is the builtins fetchers are weird because bootstrapping and they also have the disadvantage they always need to fetch or something or is that the ones in lib? I seem to remember something funky.
they do cache the result if you specify an output / commit hash
I don't think lib has any fetchers?
no, there's just builtins + pkgs/build-support, the latter which is obviously only available after bootstrapping
Oh, I thought it was lib.fetchFromGitHub?
Nix could bundle all its dependencies with the installation
