It would be enough. However, I think I can also modify the current setup to do PPC builds on 10.6 using a custom Xcode 3.2 installation alongside the existing Xcode 4 installation for the modern builds. Shouldn't be a big problem - just let me try next weekend.
Having a supported OS on jones is nice, so it would be a backward step to install 10.5 again IMHO. Virtualizing 10.5 could be another idea, but isn't  trivial to setup.

Would it make sense to move veda's hosting to ECP/VIA for easier maintenance btw.? I could also ask a contact at my university's data center for hosting. Since they also mirroring Debian, they could be interested, especially since veda is a low traffic machine.. They are connected with a 11 Gb and a 6 Gb line, so performance wouldn't be an issue.
Hosting veda on a different site could also vastly speed up its CPU performance btw. since I got the feeling that it is doing a lot of non-VideoLAN stuff which is a bit strange for a VideoLAN-owned device purchased through donations..
