Not quite a surprise considering that neither Ian Jackson nor I have
used these two. Personally I prefer sbuild as that's what Debian's
builders use (and thus it's kind of the "official" builder), and it's
very efficient.

I don't want to personally maintain those as each new test runner is
quite a commitment to maintain. But if someone wants to write one and
a corresponding test suite and maintain it, I'm happy to include it.
