Hi Steve,

Sure, that is what we currently use as a go-between for SSH.  It had to
be hacked to better isolate the 9front machine from the rest of the
network, but that already works.

This build farm also serves a number of other systems.  like primarily
Linux and BSDs.  9front is the one that requires a special setup in the
framework.  This is implemented, but it's suboptimal and it produces its
own bugs.  It would be better IMO to handle Plan 9 as any other system.
That's why I'm asking.  And that's also why suggesting some other tool
in general is not an answer to my question, sorry :-(.

Thanks, benny
