Absolutely. I was actually talking to some folks in Citrix about this last 
Friday, as they are now using it for the open-source builds of the Xen Cloud 
Platform (also using git+ocaml). Jenkins seems to be the way forward.

The regression suite in the Mirage tree is falling into shape very nicely now, 
and will also generate performance numbers as well as basic functionality 
tests. Richard Mortier is currently working on porting our old ad-hoc scripts 
into the new framework, so once I'm back from Japan after next week, I'd be 
very keen to hook it into a continuous build system so we can keep an eye on 
the numbers as we experiment with changes.

And if there's one thing the first full Mirage publication needs, it's a lot of 
numbers :-)
