Agreed, and we might even be able to offer an older machine for this,
perhaps later this spring because things are just too crazy for us at
the moment.

FYI, we currently have a machine that does some automated builds/tests
(and much more) internally. I haven't checked the status of this
recently, but I believe it runs the msautotest and your Python tests
from the latest CVS source daily... or that was the goal anyway. I
realize that since the machine is internal it doesn't help you much, but
at least you can see that we agree with the idea.

Down the road, it would be nice to do something like what Curl does:
they have an automated build/test script as part of the source
distribution that you can install on any machine to report build results
for various platforms. Then the results are automatically compiled at
