I still have an open NAK since this would DoS our existing fd.o CI
runner infrastructure; GitLab itself is fine, but subjecting our
elderly build machine with a flaky network on the wrong continent to
this would be too much.

I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to stand up two sets of runners -
one still based in the UK, but on modern and dedicated machines with
better network; another on a US-based cloud provider, matching our
us-east GitLab master location - before XDC starts, so during XDC we
could get those as dedicated runners for a fork of the Mesa project
and try to gather some stats and profiles on how they actually

Hopefully if it goes well then we should be able to switch them on
almost immediately.
