Interestingly enough, build slaves aren't as cheap as one would think. Right
now, we're running against the limits of our VMs at a few places here at
Mozilla, and we're already at a size where just adding another machine
doesn't really solve the problem.

Another thing that I have in my mind is that I'm not sure if we're not
reaching the limits of what our masters can handle. And if the master would
like to be split, we'd still like to use one pool of slaves, and have locks

Which is probably the hardest thing to do in the whole piece.
