I think it would be good to have a scheme where all possible setup
for regression runners, except for the set of installed compilers,
is centrally managed, so that regression runners won't ever
have to tweak anything at all. Or better yet -- won't be able
to change anything.

Such scheme does not exist at the moment, unfortunately.
