I think we should include Paul Brook in the discussion, as he written a
lot of parts of the ARM emulation, and is also active in the Debian ARM
Anyway I will say that if we can have fast machine (and there are fast
ARM machines), it is better than a few not to slow emulated ARM machine.
But that machine should be accepted by the DSA. And here is the problem.

For what I saw they are a bit faster than the Debian build machines. You
can expect to have a ARM v5 running at around 350 MHz. And with plenty
of RAM (256 MB in my case), so that make a huge difference on some packages.

Yes, I will do that later today.
