I took a while to answer this, but have actually been thinking about it 
a bit.  For various reasons (not least but not only the time to organise 
it) it is not something that we will be able to do in the foreseeable 
future though.  So we thought we would turn that around, and suggest 
that if the user community feels that it would be useful they might look 
for someone to host it and to do the builds.  Might that be an alternative?
