When amount of binary packages comes to critical mass
we'll have to setup building farm :)
For now, in several activities(bounce, colors, any GCompris etc.)
I use very simple scheme: package x86/x86_64 and python25/python26 blobs
and use simple selector to run proper binaries.
Dont know how we can unify this process(do we really need it?) before switcing
to building farm for ASLO.
