The only concern I would have is that since the source analysis takes
longer than the actual build, having just one machine may lead to
backlogs.  If there's too much time between the build in the buildsys
and the analysis on the parallel machines, the repos might be too
different as well.  There are all manner of time-based repo race
conditions here that we don't encounter now because we don't have two
systems building stuff at different times with the same repo.
