I would like to participate in something like this.  I don't think it 
would increase the installer testing I already do on bare metal and in a 
VM, but it might depending on the convenience provided.  I think it 
would greatly expedite and make easier those "hey, folks, we need a 
quick test of a change and some karma" we saw a lot of in the later 
stages of F16 development.
