Yes, that is a good reason ... we had requested for SSH logins for
non x86 machines or other less popular OSes . And the response has
been good.

Yes . I'm a great fan of automating work (== amazingly lazy)

Yes, I really know .. we can really do a tinderbox if I can figure 
out how . .. I'm a guy with a *slow* dialup and cannot fix up things
online (or try tinderboxing) stuff.

Also one of the uses I have seen with a tinderbox are instant binary
builds .. ie cvs head binaries of GNU (Linux,Hurd,Darwin,Cygwin) ,
HPUX , (Open|Net|Free)BSD .

Unfortunately I'm down and out on bandwidth side , so someone else
will have to try the tinderbox ... I would like it very much if someone
knowledgeable in this would help us. Erik , could you ?.

If possible we could discuss this issue in detail at the pnet meet ...
