And the good news is that it was a real! drop-in replacement. We moved the 
disks to the new system and the system booted with 4 CPUs and 8GB of RAM. 
A test with wine shows that a rebuild went down from 40 mins to 8 mins !!

Other operations go visibly faster, KVM becomes an option as well as Koji. 
The only dead-slow operations are an 'svn up' and collecting the new 
packages to be signed (an expensive find :-/), hopefully if I buy two new 
disks to replace the RAID-1 200GB disks any I/O bottlenecks hit later :)

It would be nice to have a front-end that can drive mock, chroots, 
kvms, subversion and even interact with Koji.
