Well, I do.

Just for example, I do care about the VAX backend. I've had something
similar to my current build robot running for a while, then it broke
(due to other circumstances) and it took me quite some time to track
down some "easter eggs" introduced in the mean time.  I'd like to
catch such things early, personally for the VAX backend, but if
possible in general.

Shouldn't be too hard to have something that dispatches commands
purely through SSH.  If there's nothing available, I'll just write it.
