If the average rate of checkins is equal to or greater than the maximum rate of test runs then that is physically impossible. (Indeed, queueing theory suggests that keeping the queue size small requires that the checkin be more like half the test rate.) This appears to be currently true for the Python trunk buildbot and I would expect running the test of numerous large applications would take even longer, making the test rate even lower. If you want something like twisted run against multiple Python versions a day, I suspect you will have to do so on a system you control.
