It's a waste of time :-)

In terms of availability, we'll have some C2 units soon, and then a
good batch of ramp units. (Is anyone crying for hw?)

In terms of performance, for big compiles, you're better off looking
at something like a trimslice, though I wish there was an option with
more than 1G DRAM.

I hear that more grunty multicore ARMv7 SoCs are in the pipeline, but
not in the market yet. You may be able to get a devkit for one of
those :-)

My guess is that next year there'll be options...
