Unless you want to rename your project zombiebite, it would probably be
better not to resurrect those old corpses.

I'm sure there are various special builds that could be useful. One is
a build with heavy resource consumption (lots of RAM, lots of disk) if
there's a machine which can handle that.
Another is testing memory leaks on all 3 branches (I have a daily
script which does that for 3.x on my personal server).
Perhaps there could even be some automated fuzzing if Victor is looking
for something to do on his free time :)
