compile once, and then copy the binaries across multiple computers.

An example of a reasonably large scale testing would be the Ubuntu
Xorg edgers packaging for piglit.[1] This package is a prime example
of a system that could be used internally at some companies wishing to
develop patches fixes for drivers because it allows the company to be
able to rapidly develop and deploy a single image without worry.

NOTE: I know that the xorg edgers package applies three small patches
similar to this patch set to allow the python scripts to work as
