Note, that we've found a bug in lintian which always caused recollection
of the `init.d' files (which means, all packages got unpacked for each
check again). After fixing the bug, the time of checking the full archive
dropped down to two hours!

Anyways, the best solution is probably to save the lintian messages for a
each package in the `lab'. With that, we'd only have to check new packages
as they are uploaded. Generating the lintian web pages from these files
only takes a few seconds.
