To clarify, I think abarth's proposal is great and we shouldn't block it on
other things a try-server could provide. Would just be nice to keep the
"make writing patches more efficient" use-case in mind as we add other
infrastructure to avoid needing, for example, a whole different set of
servers for that.

This entirely depends on the change you're making. For example, with a
change that makes buttons 1px wider it's easy to verify from the layout test
diff that the new results are correct. It's also easy to spot tests with
"FAIL" or "PASS" in the output. :)
