prevent /space/<build> from recreation everytime tinderbuild starts

the following idea came to my mind while tinderboxing on an old PII-333
with a slow IDE disk, and I'm interested what others think about it:
I would like to add a flag to ./tc tinderbuild to prevent /space/<build>
from recreation (cleanDirs + tar) in case that flag was given on cmdline.
I see two ways to prevent any polution from any previous run:
1) Remove any left-over file when leftovers are detected in portsbuild.
2) add a filed in the database which marks a build as "dirty" when one
or more builds had left-overs. That would end up in a recreation of
/space/<build> even if the new flag was given next time tinderbuild
I for my own would prefer the 1st way.
