I have summarized some of my thoughts in my previous mail to Alain:

Earlier, there was the concept of "sponsor" for the given platform, I
guess it would still make sense to re-introduce it.  The sponsor is
somebody who is willing to pay attention to the given platform, run a
builder client for it, therefore maintaining it.  For Tier-1
platforms, such support was a requirement back then.

So, we would need to set up at least the following builders: {Linux,
Windows, Mac OS X} {x86, x86_64}, and then I could migrate all the
others I have on my machine to there as well.
