Finding out when Ubuntu breaks something is important too, and indeed
one reason I started the daily Ubuntu builds and will be doing them with
the development release.
A testbot can't really know if it was Ubuntu breaking something or us
breaking something that was only exposed on Ubuntu. We can make prior
assumptions for individual machines though, such as it's usually fglrx's
fault, and adjust our behavior/failure warnings accordingly.
