Is "remote" really such an important requirement? Don't
the other servers have cron and other infrastructure
or is local building considered to eat up too much

If my website was important enough, I'd rather use
local doc building rather than depend on trusted third
parties and the security of machines I don't control.

This doesn't mean forrest shouldn't do remote building.
