Agreed... certainly for the first cut.  As long as we can get the data
out in a way that's easy to manipulate then that's fine.  How about we
start to get familiar with buildbot by provisioning a Rackspace VM for it
and running it on a fork of opam-repository (so that all the commenting
noise doesn't drown out the main repo while we're experimenting).
