OLPC build creation failed

I agree, the ratio between emulation and native is not so great, it is
only around 2:1.  Having fast I/O attached to your emulator host
would compensate to some degree.

For those with slow or unreliable internet, it may be faster to do a
build in emulation than to use an XO-1.75 over SSH followed by copying
the build.

The work flow and techniques of batch processing can be used.

You can easily increase the number of builders by adding cheap
systems, or more emulators on an SMP system, and start a new builder
as soon as you have a new change, without waiting for the previous
builders to finish.

Don't let the good be the enemy of the perfect.
