I've never quite understood why they seem so slow. When I build stuff
locally on a quad G5 @2.5GHz with 7GiB of RAM, it goes a lot quicker
than _all_ our build machines do.

Well, if it _fails_ that's likely to be generic problem which you need
to deal with anyway. If it _succeeds_ then can't you get the builds from
koji as soon as they're finished on each architecture? They take another
day or so to hit the mirrors _anyway_, so presumably it's not _that_
delay you care about.
