I wonder if this could get to the point where it could be done seti-at-home
style, farmed out via a VM image.  That is people would run the image to
provide resources (and geographic distribution) to the build server cloud.
 Maybe they get a fast local mirror as a reward.

If it were every that easy I would certainly love to run a VM!
