Yeah that sound cool indeed... but pretty resource intensive and not
'distributed friendly'....
To work you need the devs to come to the VMs rather than the other way
around ( because practically transferring 20-30 GB over internet is a
pretty high barrier)
So we wold have to have a set of 'centralized servers' and manage the
credential of all the devs that want access to it... and then manage
somehow the 'traffic' on these box to avoid congestion....
Not inconceivable, but need some thinking and some tooling to make it

But, as you said... that is a completely different ballgame...
