Maybe we're working from different assumptions, but I thought the entire
basis for this discussion is that the project has grown to the point
where we have more resources than we used to --- and in particular,
we can find people who don't feel able to fix deep backend bugs, but are
ready and willing to track bug details and status with a goodly amount
of cluefulness.  If that resource doesn't actually exist, then I fear
this whole discussion will come to naught.  If it does exist, we should
call upon it.

This is not that far different from the premise upon which you built
the buildfarm: that there were people out there able to provide machine
resources and a certain amount of admin time.  The resources this
project requires are not those exactly, but why shouldn't we expect
that some people will answer the call?
