 Right, it's a good proposal and makes sense (especially since my second
point may (or may not) be ignored to some extend and self-control from
the uploaders, thus I deleted it out now), but there is still my first
point as blocker:

 Before the chroots aren't there (and that's in buildd admin hand) it's
not possible to move any further from here.  Past discussions to get
that done were very tiring and left the impression that the generation
of the corresponding chroots is a big burden, and offers to help to
reduce that overhead (because it needs to get done regardless, even
without backports involved) were not responded to.

 So long,
Fühlst du dich mutlos, fass endlich Mut, los      |
Fühlst du dich hilflos, geh raus und hilf, los    | Wir sind Helden
Fühlst du dich machtlos, geh raus und mach, los   | 23.55: Alles auf Anfang
Fühlst du dich haltlos, such Halt und lass los    |
