I recently got an ODROID-X (4x1.4 GHz Cortex A9, 1GB RAM) for a 
very similar purpose, i.e. running the LDC test suite on ARM. 
It's fast enough that working on compiler development without 
resorting to cross-compiling is actually somewhat fun, but I 
didn't get around to set it up it yet – we are cleaning things 
up for an actual x86/x86_64 release right now, as some distros 
seem to decisively prefer packaging releases instead of Git 

It would likely be always on, albeit behind a somewhat broken 
router, so you'd have to use a VPN for outside access. Also, I'm 
not quite sure how the tiny box would handle the pressure from 
both GDC and LDC.

Anyway, Iain, if the Raspberry PI offers don't work out, feel 
free to give me a shout.
