Should we have some kind of issue for
"hygiene" tracking? Right now I'm seeing a handful of annoying behavior: • pants creates a bunch of empty exception text files in the .pants.d directory ◦ Like a BUNCH • Similarly I see a bunch of dirs for each run in
◦ Not all of them have contents ◦ If they have contents it is a single file ◦ That single file is sometimes empty • If I do any run with

14:58:43.45 [DEBUG] Launching 1 roots (poll=true).
