Compile farm for building kde

After having seen the following:


and of course the posts from Ivan detailing progress on getting KDE
packaged,  the thought occurred to me that it might be helpful to have a
compile farm for building KDE.  Reduce the design, compile, test time by
a factor of 10 maybe.

Is that realistic?  Would it be beneficial?

Someone out there benefiting from kde must have a load of workstations
they could configure to allow a developer to do compiles on.  Maybe even
have 1 dedicated machine that could install then run the packaged KDE
system & export the X display over the internet to the developers
workstation, so the developer doesn't have to even dl the results across
the net.

(Maybe use vnc?

I also recall reading that compiling sun's star office takes 10, or 10's
of hours.  Maybe the farm could be used for a number of projects.
