Not that I have any particular problem with vmware (I've used it in
the past to some success), but I should like to point out here that
not only is qemu free, it is Free, and it would work just fine for
this.  (I have been using it quite a bit lately, actually.)

The monotone folks use buildbot, and have monotone integration patches
for it.  I'm under the impression that it's rather a pain to set up,
though, from discussions on the mailing list.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
