Do you know that in the coming weeks, we'll have the whole unity stack 
(and not restricted to it), being built daily in ubuntu? Meaning that if 
you have a fix in unity, you don't surely won't need to build the latest 
nux or compiz because it will be in ubuntu :)

Also, it means that once a papercut is reviewed and landed to trunk, the 
day after, it will be in ubuntu, quite motivating, isn't it? :)

So fixing something will only ask for (for instance, in unity):
- sudo apt-get build-dep unity
- bzr branch lp:unity
- <hack your fix>
- bzr bd
-> install the packages, tests

So, I guess this script is really not needed (nor the machinery to have 
it running everyday).

Also, ensure that all UI/behavior changes are first talked with the 
design team (John Lea) so that they are accepted before proposing the 

Thanks a lot for this awesome ongoing effort.
