That looks like a possibility for testing builds. Unfortunately I can't
guarantee being able to spend lots of hours at some specific dates, so this
would be less suitable for development use. Occasionally my real job gets
in the way :-) The other development docs there definitely look very useful

And as I didn't know they existed, a Sun LX50 would be very handy too.
