Sounds reasonable proposal to me. What kind of insight do you need?

IJ's udpate-buildd.net scripts provide some insight (see the bottom of
page for example on of two of the three buildd's we have:)


It shows that the buildd is up, running and conntected to internet,
and what it's building and for how long. It does not tell if the
build is stuck or spinning to infinity, but that should be quite
rare for packages that managed to get to stable (and thus needing
security uploads).

"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
