While that used to be true, the Subversion project has dedicated buildbot
slaves running in a dedicated virtual machines, or machines set up but svn
folks. Once builds are taking too long to finish - thereby blocking other
builds from other projects - it doesn't make sense anymore to share slaves.

Also as for OOo a lot of libraries need to be installed to get it to build,
it'll be much easier (well, less difficult) to keep it separated from the
other projects.
