tip (hack?) for development in pantsbuild/pants: if you run with
--loop
,
pantsd
will not restart itself, even when you’ve edited the code of pants itself.

makes it much faster to iterate on fixing a test that needs edits to the underlying pants code
currently working on
./pants --loop test src/python/pants/engine/internals/graph_test.py -- -k test_coarsened_targets
