Um, you mean why don't I, or allmydata.com, or someone run a Solaris  
buildslave?  Actually I already do, but it is running Nexenta (a.k.a.  
GNU/OpenSolaris) so it doesn't have the Python configuration problem  
that Jonathan LaCour reported:

I think the general answer though is that even with virtual machines,  
running a buildslave takes computer resources and admin resources, so  
we need volunteers.
