   That sounds wonderful! Is the result of the build attempts visible
anywhere? Do you have plans to support more OSes/linux distributions?

   I'm still not quite clear on how it's ill-suited to python -- is it
because building things on python rarely "breaks"?

I'd love to hear about it, and I'm guessing many others would as
well. After spending some time reading the buildbot (buildbot.sf.net)
documentation, one of the things it lets you do is have an array of
"build slaves" that can be located anywhere and just have to have a
user account running the build slave daemon. If you want to make sure
things compile/run/test on your esoteric platform, you just have to
run a build-slave. Does cruisecontrol have anything like this?
