Well, we do have a limited rack space at lost oasis so we cannot
add much server for the moment, and for now, I think we are planning 
others stuff with potential server ( and as people will ask it, no, we still do not
plan to let people run a buildnode if the sysadmin team is not the only group
of people to access to it as admin for security reason ).

We do not have it  ( except the pony ), but how should we be distribute build
in a fair fashion ? I fear that having this would lead to some frustration ( while 
first  in, first out is IMHO easy to understand and quite fair most of the time ).
