1/ keeping a local bibisect repo on each tb would be expensive in, if
nothing else,  bandwidth
2/ multiple tb upload stuff.. synchronizing htem can be difficult,
especially with wide variation in upload bandwidth
3/ the order of commit in the bibisect matter.
4/ experience shows that somethings things break for some minor
details.. being able to fix things an recover using staged build is
5/ having some kind of control over the bibisect buidling as it build
is good. it is easier to do when a centralized script do the job..
then one can review the log and decide to re-do thing if need be,
before the problem is buried too deep.
