Actually, that's a really good idea. CD builds are *very* IO-heavy and
involve lots of random-access and small reads and writes. SSD would be
a nice fit if we can get something large enough - we need to keep a
local mirror and the temporary build trees in a single
filesystem. Currently we're using ~900GB of a 2TB filesystem.
