I wasn't contesting the Autobuilder as I think it has to play the role
it currently has more and better.

Looking at other solutions is always good.  :)  Online build systems can
be useful to build packages targeting not only Maemo but other similar
platforms as well.

Going back to the topic of immediate tasks for short term benefits, the
Autobuilder we have needs to be an essential tool to make easier the
life of Maemo 5 developers and increase the quality of the packages
offered to end users.
