Well, they could change the boxes to use fast machines, i guess it should be
no major problem, it is just that i386 users are spoiled by the majority of
DDs uploading x86.
Also, i guess it can be no worse than arm or m68k buildds, and even on my
pegasos i take around 9/10 hours to build the powerpc kernels.
This is a minor technical hurdle.

the idea is to build a few flavours with the -RT patches, not all images, the
same as you only built a few flavours for the vserver patches, and i guess
only powerpc, i386 and amd64 need to be considered for now. So, you don't risk
an explosion of the number of flavours.
