Hmm, just an idea.  This would be much more easiear if wou would
have the following situation:

A maintainer only uploads his source or diffs and announces this
if he likes to.

  Nightly some machines (i386, alpha, m68k, sparc, ppc) fetch the
  source out of the incoming directory and compile them.  The resulting
  .deb is automatically uploaded into another directory (or into hte
  unstable tree at once) and the source archive finds its way into
  the archive, too.
