That's fascinating.  It was not mentioned on either mailing list I
described, and it still doesn't affect the point.  It's not reasonable
for the release to be inconvenienced because the machine is being moved;
that kind of thing is *exactly why* we have the requirement to have more
than one buildd.

If the requirement is going to be ignored, even in the case where it is
in the middle of things, then let's not have the requirement at all.
