The technique I pondered about here should be feasible, though I still
haven't found the time to actually make the switch from tinderbox to
buildbot sadly:


If you get it to work, I'd love to hear any tips, and see any custom
code required!

One quick tip which isn't in the compilefarm docs (or wasn't when I last
looked) is that to get sane build times and to avoid running out of
quota you need to build in /tmp or /var/tmp on the compile farm machines
rather than in the NFS mounted home directory.  Sadly which is better
varies between the machines, but usually /var/tmp is the better choice
