To solve that, we really need fully automated autobuilding, even on the
arch the maintainer is using.
The only thing really missing for that now, is to have one of the
autobuilder build the arch:all stuff, or have an arch:all specific
autobuilders, altough maybe not all packages are upto that yet.
People still would need to build the packages fully to make sure it
works before it would be accepted, but after that, it will be fully
autobuilt for all arches.
I guess the changes file would need to contain a flag or something to
make sure that it finished the build on the home box.
Also this would be good for developper with small bandwith on their
