Sounds reasonable, but how do you turn SMOLT profiles into real test
machines? In the worst case you will end up building one test server for
every single bug. Without proper hardware virtualization (which we will
not see for the next 10-20 years) that testing thing would be more
expensive than just sending certified hardware to every user for free ;)
