84 of them are 10.6
86 of them are 10.7
Unfortunately, we have a lot of them down (maybe a dozen) trying to fix
them (broken hard drives, bad memory, NIC). They don't have warranty.

It would be nice indeed.

We could come to the compromise of running them on m-c, m-a, m-b and
m-r. Only this would help a lot since most of the load comes from m-i
and try. We could make it a non-by-default platform on try.
I assume that the wait times for 10.6 should be good enough but we
should be willing to revisit later down the road if they get bad again.
We can start with decreasing the load and visit again down the road.
