I probably neglected to reply to this earlier.
I think that would indeed be a significant help. I don't run tests terribly systematically. I basically try to scrounge up a variety of machines before a major release. My impression is that Ivan sometimes does better, but I don't think he runs anything like daily tests on the CVS version.
It would probably be most useful to test the CVS version with --enable-gc-assertions or equivalent, though that's not a good production configuration.
