The problem on Beagleboards (XM or older) is the IO to the SD card. It's
ok, but not stellar. Plus there's the wear and tear on the card. I've
already killed one by setting up a swap file on it by accident. :)

Once I get back to the actual hardware, I can easily try an XM and
standard beagle build, as well as the dual-core trimslice. I have quite
a number of these things, I'm just stuck at a conference with a net
connection that's too unreliable to not try and do a remote system setup
Of course if anybody else has a system around they feel like trying this
on, go ahead.
PS: I agree that the idea with an embedded buildfarm sounds good. We
could look into cross-compiling for that if needed.
