You are running hudson for < 20 jobs, I am running it for > 200, a scale 
at which I have to drive it through the groovy console to keep 
everything in sync (which brings in further hate in the form of poor 
documentation and a complete lack of tutorial of the api, not to mention 
having to write groovy code).

I think perhaps hudson is not what I want, despite being a big bloated 
java piece of hate, it doesn't actually give me some of the features I 
could use to scale things horizontally appropriately. there are certain 
things I like about it, but managing a hudson of this scale is becoming 
too big a timesink when I have other things to be doing.
