I wonder, how hard would it be to have, say Amazon images of various
Linux distributions with ghc and cabal-install available?  Currently, I
have a discontious integration server that checks my stuff by pulling
off hackage, but this is a bit limited, as well as a security risk.  I'd
consider running something off Amazon instead - perhaps it could
even be automated, so that I could do 'cabal install whatever' in
parallel on a slew of configurations?  And, although I could probably
pay for my own stuff, perhaps Amazon could contribute (som of) the CPU

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
