Guiseppe volunteers to do it.  And we have also GRASS daily builds now (for
a bunch of branches).

As for the backup, I have a cronjob that nulls the qgis-dev builds after a week
and deletes them a day later.   I assume the backup is daily and doesn't take
deleted files into account, so the backup should consist of mostly empty
qgis-dev files.  If the assumption is correct, that should proabably also be
done for GRASS and possible other daily builds.

So I don't have objections against daily builds - but I'd be unwilling to base
the qgis-dev on them.
