I could revive some hosts, too, though it would involve some work.
But the point is not machines; if they are set up, in general they will
keep running (module age issues). The point is how much time we're
willing to put in. I'm still interested in getting this hybrid ColdFire
thing working, but not if I end up being the only one to work on it
again. I'd also need to get a fairly up-to-date environment to work on
my coldfire board.

We should be careful in how we prioritize packages. We should not let
buildd hosts sit idle if there are things they might be able to build.
Also, adding more computing power is, in general, just a scalability
issue. Adding more manpower is something else.
The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
