  This is really a null argument with all the high powered PCs running
around recompiling Gentoo every day I think we can find one to rebuild
Debain too.  I'm sure I could get approval to use my work stations as
buildds if needed, but I have a sneaking suspicious somebody else has
something better than a single proc Athlon XP 2000+ they want to use to keep
their house/office warm.  PCs are a dime a dozen, and broadband is widely
available, I don't see away to out grow the building potential we have other
than ignoring it.

  Out of curiosity, does anybody have any numbers on how much "churn" there
is in x86?
