At Apple we could have a pool of slaves...  one configuration of  
anything ever (recently) shipped.  This would be an insane collection  
of machines, unreasonable to replicate through different teams...  but  
if they could all be part of a slave pool assignable to multiple  
teams' masters, we could have, say, thirty different projects that  
each get a small slice of time on every config.  That would be a huge  
boon to our coverage...
