We can set multiple built bots on each node.

But with 2 nodes ( unless we decide to add some vm
on the web server for building, or on the server used for iso building ), 
there isn't much variations to do. But our servers are quite fast, so
this shouldn't be a problem before a long time.

Of course, if we can manage to get more servers to rack, and once we will have
fullfilled the needs that were expressed over the past months ( like at minima 1 
backup server and 1 server for shell access ), we can start to add build nodes.

Ideally, we should also think of integrating ports in the mix. I had a pandaboard 
for that purpose that I gave to a friend in the meantime, but I think there is more urgent
thing to do for the moment :)
