The last time you did this was in July 2006.  It took us two weeks to
mostly recover, but we were still dealing with some fallout in December,

We had the buildfarm then, had had it for a couple years.  The notion
that watching the buildfarm is enough is fully disproven by history.

Unless you have a better test plan than last time (which this isn't),
I don't think this should be done at all.  The benefits are microscopic
and the pain real.
