Wanna-build is scheduling the packages in a certain manner, priority is one
of these, historical build time, reverse dependencies and overdue time are
I've been in favour of a modern w-b replacement for a long, long time (see
http://www.buildd.net/files/Multibuild-Draft.pdf), but somehow there wasn't
enough interest to finish, although there was already a sbuild replacement
Anyway, I still find w-b to act suboptimal in such situations we're facing
at the moment...
