It's not good enough unfortunately; that's the way I thought we should
approach the problem as well in the past, but it turns out that large
companies don't like to rely on external resources/services. They are
big enough that they feel their process should be self-hosted. I also
thought they could build the same build farm as we would, but then you
start meeting with the sensibilities/policitical issues around using
hardware from a competitor to run your own build farm.
