Yeah, but if you're serious about using their service, I wouldn't be
surprised for them to make an exception for some open source projects.
BTW, a reasonable hard timeout makes a lot of sense to me in case a
build can be stuck.

With that being said, I also agree with Karel wrt reinstating the
"old" builder infrastructure, especially considering coverage of
different hardware architectures. In fact, I recall an email from Ian
some time ago with details on what would be required to restore that.
