That sounds really great, can you please share more details? It's just your
guess or you've achieved such build times already?

I was thinking about doing QA builds on Google Cloud Platform, where you're
billed on minute basis, minimum is 10 minutes. So n1-highcpu-32 machine with
32 CPUs and 28GiB of RAM would cost you about $0.2 for that 10 minutes. It
would of course mean to have the sources downloaded/rsynced in the same
datacenter already so it would be fast.
