Yea, don't use _checkouts, that should be for local development and
removes the checkout app from the lock file.

People can try this https://github.com/tsloughter/rebar3_vendor

It has issues if you have git deps... but I think it is a start for
those who need this. Hopefully those who need it can improve it from
here :)
