[cctbxbb] bootstrap.py not overwriting modified sources

Hi all, 

It appears that when bootstrap.py is invoked to update sources then
unsurprisingly it doesn't overwrite existing sources if these are more
recent, as in someone has modified them and not committed the changes.
Occasionally this leads to broken builds. 

To prevent this from happening would it not be a good idea to change
bootstrap.py to default to overwrite any uncommitted changes unless some
flag is set on the command line?
