Another general advantage of doing tinderbox builds in a VM would be 
that each build can start from a known-good VM snapshot and a runaway 
build can be stopped cleanly.  So problems like steadily filling up tmp 
or leftover processes after a hung test would become non-issues.  (Not 
that they do plague us, though; just for the record.)
