Should it become a problem for MIPS, then I have a MIPS machine
sitting on my desk. I actually bought it for that exact purpose 2
years ago: an additional buildd. I bought a disk for that machine,
out of my pocket.

I never proposed the machine as an additional buildd, because, at the
exact same time, the discussions about how well the buildd maintainers
handled the load just started, and Ryan Murray clearly stated that he
did not need additional buildd power for MIPS. Although the
architecture was falling behind, with a couple of buildds down.

This machine is still available, it's in perfect working condition,
alive and kickin'. (Indigo2 R4400 SC w/256 MB of usable RAM)
