"The point" of buildbot (atleast the way we use it) is to see
immediately what check-in broke the tests on some platform. So yes,
permanent availability would be desirable.

However, buildbot runs in the background (atleast on Unix), and
gets triggered whenever a checkin occurs. So the machine doesn't
have to be *dedicated*; any machine that is always on might do.
