Indeed. These pre-commit machines have to be dedicated, and we may
have to have more than one, depending on the volume.

But the good news is that they can scale independently, and they'll
remove a huge strain from the current buildbots. Also, I think it's
easier to justify (commercially) a few additional pre-commit bots than
duplicating every single configuration I have today.
