It's all relative.  A compiler installation is less than 1GB, typically.
A source tree is many GB.  A build tree is tens of GB.

There already *are* compilers of the latest release installed on many
systems.  There are no daily builds, everyone wants to test with different
options -- and that is a *good* thing.

If you want to make some "generic" (say) weekly build available to everyone,
everywhere, just do so?
