No, I think you're taking a reasonable approach. As you say, the  
biggest area for concern in terms of load is the work of creating a  
custom build package on the server. Interaction with the Builder user  
interface itself happens on the client, not the server, and can be  
tested in isolation. We should be all set.

Thanks for explaining your approach to the list,
