Ideally, you would want to build once/revision so if the build breaks, you know which commit
broke it.

You are not considering here the time that it takes to build the project.
a commits
continuum starts building
b commits
continuum can't start building, busy
c commits
continuum can't start building, busy
continuum finishes building
continuum starts building b and c changes

I don't realy know what is the overhead of getting the revision number
to check for changes but shouldn't be heavy at all

new projects added, and automagically add them to continuum as well.

I could give you my word as a Spaniard.
No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
