I think everyone is agreeing that we should have a suitable replacement for EWS. 

But I also want to see us move forward with clean ups. I think such clean ups will bring clarity to what we would want our EWS testing to look like since we'll have fewer configurations to test. 

I like the approach of switching to manual testing in the short term, and working in parallel on an EWS replacement.

>>> We really need to get the Mac or Win EWS performing tests by default and reliably before doing this. At present, only the chromium-linux EWS bot has been consistently running tests. When Mac/Win tests were turned on recently, it resulted in huge backups on those EWS bots, and eventually having tests disabled.

We need to keep the Chromium/v8 port building, and maintain its test results, until we have alternate sources for that stuff. If that's the consensus, I'll restore the cr-linux and cr-linux-x86 test results.
