OTOH, that isn't that expensive (compared to the other PSF expenses),
plus people keep donating money, so when we say what we use it for,
there may be a larger return than just the test results.

OTTH, the same could be achieved by buying a hosted server elsewhere.


P.S. Perhaps this *is* the time for Steve to ask for "always-on" machines.
