We can always look at adding another solaris zone specifically for
this, rather than overloading the lucene zone IMO.

I have concerns about intermingled infrastructures.

I am mostly curious how adding more build slaves solves these
reliability problems, since they all seem to stem from builds taking
excessive amounts of time, freezing, or having whacky OOM issues.

Won't adding more machines just mean more slaves get stuck in this mess?

Isn't the right fix to fix projects to... for lack of a better word... suck?

Thanks,

Paul
