Well, drop me a line. Our server still has quite some spare cycles and
bandwidth as you can see here:

I think hosting your service is no problem as long as it doesn't
affect the performance of the other services to much. (The anoncvs
mirror needs a lot of disk I/O). Does you script have machinery to 
limit the max. amount of simultenous compile jobs?  Does it serialize 
them, or... Otherwise, the script can run on our server, while
the compile jobs run on my home machine (24h unlimited 1-3Mbs
--depending on the weather-- Microwave connectivity). Both run
NetBSD more or less current...
