Awesome, I actually have a few servers I will use, and since it will be
distributed, we will be able to use a lot of servers as builders all
reporting to a single master.

As for the web end, I was thinking of having the web frontend just act as a
notification area about the queue and the builds, so people could check on
build stats and download experimental pkgs etc. Then the queue would be
managed via the scms.

Of course, it will be pluggable, so we can make a web "scm" interface as
well if we want!
