 Well, since Greg has said that the 4.3 gcc builds have lost the
randomness he was seeing, maybe farce will again be usable.

 Farce extects you to tar up the system at the end of the build.
I've certainly used it for 3-run testing in the past.

 I don't think I've looked at the details of Greg's ICA since I
wrote farce, so I can't comment on how it works but provided you can
tar everything up at the end of each build, before resuming the next
stage of ICA in jhalfs, you should be able to use the same build.
