Yes. Like another wanna-build setup, another chroot on all buildds,
another suite to process from the archive software, another suite to
make sure you upload to the right one.

thirdd on on all buildds and the wanna-build) is larger than the gain
for the user. Sorry.

* gwolf silently reads Maulkin's question
<stone-head> netinstall over 56kbps modem
<stockholm> Maulkin: yes, they hope to have drums installed at the hotel
            by then so they can communicate with them at 20bit/s
<gwolf> stockholm: Make them _fast_ drums!
<stockholm> ok, 40bit/s
<gwolf> I still have to meet a drummer who can slap at 40hz
