That's true. On the other hand, giving one automated system SSH access  
to another opens up a new attack angle for hackers, unless we are able  
to properly sandbox this. Like, we'd have to store the credentials of  
a ScummVM developers on the buildbot server to allow it to SSH into  
the webserver. Not good.
