I've "contributed" 2 machines.  One is my personal box, the other is
the PSFs.  The PSF box is very lightly used except by automated stuff,
so it's not a problem.  My box is a dual opteron and it really isn't a
problem for me right now.  I suppose if it was building all the time,
I might mind, but so far, there's no issues.

Hopefully over time we will get more people contributing other boxes
and this might become a bigger issue.  But right now I don't think
it's a problem.
