Ummm, WTH? We've been looking into possible *upgrades* to replace some
of the armel and armhf buildds with faster and (ideally) more easily
managed machines, but I *seriously* disagree with any suggestion that
the current machines are "buggy". I can see that with the some of the
known-buggy mips* machines, but I don't accept that the arm* machines
could/should be classified this way.
