It's actually not that hard.  It's just tedious – very very tedious – to set up 
the buildmaster config to handle that.  And there have been many other things 
that have captured my attention ahead of that task ;-)

The original purpose of the buildbots was to shake out portability issues 
across different UNIX variants.  For that it has been successful.  But when you 
get into the n! permutations of build configs, scalability goes all to hell in 
a hurry.

If we had more machines in the build cluster I wouldn't be so concerned.  But 
right now all the build slaves are VMs running on my Mac Mini, and I do like to 
use it for other things, too :-)
