So that in case various packages have to be build in an order,
where the seconds depends on the first being available and so on,
that it doesn't take weeks to get them all build. We would have
to wait at least a dinstall before the next one could be build,
assuming sometimes has the time to sign the package between
It basicly just avoids a whole lot of delays.
