[LLVMdev] NewNightlyTester.pl: split into phases?

Hi all,

when looking at NewNightlyTester.pl, I see it has several distinct

1. Get a current tree
2. ./configure
3. Build
4. Run a selection of tests
7. Send test results to web site
8. Clean up

Wouldn't it make sense to allow each phase to be activated individually?
Or possibly a subset of phases, something along the lines of

  -from-phase=test -to-phase=report

With that, I could do all kinds of nifty things, such as checking out
once and running the test site for i386 and amd64; or testing compiler
options without having to re-download the source tree; or avoiding
sending irrelevant test results because the test suite isn't properly
installed yet.

Does that make sense? Problems?
I'd be willing to implement this if something like that is welcomed.
