Does what? Uploads logs to server? It's a one-liner.

To switch, you have to transfer all the logic of 'regression.py' to
BuiltBot server side. Then everybody needs to switch to the new test
running infrastructure. The cost of implementing the whole thing is
significantly higher, although it's definitely more exciting to work
on than fixing the mundane problems of the existing tools.
