Just an idea, I do not know if this would be feasable, but anyway. There seem
to be a number of volunteers running regression tests. If this is somehow
automated, could the scripts used to run regression tests be modified so all
the tools would be build and uploaded to a server when required? This way
most targets would be covered.

I think that may be true, but it is far from optimal.
